Popular OC Easter Egg Hunts
It’s the time of year that children delight in almost as much as Christmas. It usually involves an oversized bunny and brightly colored eggs being strategically hidden. It also entails the devouring of jelly beans, chocolate bunnies and the infamous marshmallow “Peeps.” I’m referring to Easter egg hunts and celebrations, of course.
Here are a few popular Orange County spots to make your family’s spring celebration one to remember:
