Easter is just around the corner!

There are several Easter egg hunts, springtime events and general Easter festivities happening in the Omaha area.

After discovering so many Easter egg hunts in the area, we decided to create a hunt of our own. We put together in interactive map for finding the various Easter-related events this week! This is the perfect way to see what’s happening close to your neighborhood or find activities in your favorite area of town.

It’s pretty simple. Match the location with the letter of the event listed below to see if the event falls on a day you and your family are free!

Happy hunting, Omaha!
