Easter weekend is upon us! A time for family, food, egg hunts and new beginnings! It is also the time of year for nicer weather and getting out to spend time with others. Across the Quad Cities Area, this weekend will be full of activities.

Every child looks forward to running around and collecting brightly colored plastic eggs filled with goodies. Easter Egg Hunts are not only thrilling for children, but very enjoyable for adults to witness as well. Here are some of the egg hunts happening in the QCA this weekend:
