We need your help to compile a complete list of all the Easter egg hunts going on this weekend in the Rockford area!

I'm extra excited for Easter this year because it will be the first time my daughter Ella will go on an Easter egg hunt, and I know she is going to love it! I can already hear her yelling "wow" and "look at that," which are her two favorite phrases to say these days, and I can't wait.

I know there are hundreds of local Easter egg hunts going on this weekend, but coming up with a "complete" list is nearly impossible for me to do alone. I need your help.

If your church, organization, or place of business is holding an Easter egg hunt this weekend that is open to the public, please share the information!

In the comment section below, (towards the bottom of the page) just tell us where and when it's happening, if there is a cost to participate, what ages can participate,  who to contact with any questions, and any other fun info we need to know.

Here's just a few places to get things started:
