  3. Thanks all, the blog has been edited with updated information for the Ann Arbor Jaycees Easter Egg Scramble and the Dexter Egg Hunt events. Many events weren't updated when the oste when live, so I'm always grateful to readers when they comment on updates or additions.

    The post didn't include any egg hunts at local church's - There are SO many more of those though! Including egg hunts in several Ypsilanti neighborhoods, throughout Ann Arbor and also Dexter.
