Greenville SC Easter Egg Hunts 2013

I’ve been asking around and it seems that most moms dread public Easter egg hunts due to the chaos (and danger) of hundreds of kids searching for eggs at the same time. If that is you, you will be happy to hear that Greenville has several options of age controlled egg hunts. In fact, Greer’s egg hunt at Century Park will only be allowing a small number of kids on the field at a time.

All of these Greenville egg hunts should be totally free (even the bounce houses!) You do have to pay for concessions though and be sure to bring baskets for your kids. (Note: Although I try hard to provide accurate information, be sure to double check the original sources provided for these hunts especially if the weather is rainy.)

Update: Weather forecast looks a little dreary this weekend, but several of these egg hunts are indoors or will be moved indoors in case of rain!

Want to drive a little farther for a bigger event?

Check out the Tyger River Park Easter Egg Scramble in Duncan on March 30th. (Note: You do have to pay for this event.) 

And, the Biltmore Annual Easter Egg Hunt in Asheville on March 31th. (The hunt is free, but you still have to pay admission for adults and children over age 9.)

So, maybe local and free is better. Though an Easter Egg Hunt at the Biltmore does sound pretty classy!
