Cities across the metro are gearing up for Easter egg hunts. Norman’s Best Easter Egg Hunt has been a tradition for more than 30 years, and city recreation supervisor Jeff Hill said it draws a crowd every year.

“They love going to find the candy,” said Hill. “It’s fun for them, and we keep the event short and sweet for the parents.”

Moore is another city with a long tradition of Easter egg hunting. Every year on the Saturday before Easter, thousands of eggs as well as wrapped candies are hidden for the children to find.

“For some kids, this is their first ever Easter egg hunt,” said Teresa Smith, special events coordinator. “We want to make it a great experience for them.”

Following is a list of some of the free egg hunts offered by city parks and recreation departments. Other Easter egg hunts may be offered by churches or other organizations. For more information about egg hunts in your area, contact your city’s parks and recreation department.
