Egg Hunts & Easter Events in San Antonio

0

I know it’s almost April and it feels like the Easter Bunny should already be here, but Easter falls late this year—on Sunday, April 21. However, it’s safe to say spring has sprung—and there are plenty of events coming up to celebrate the season. Many of the egg hunts we’ve listed are free, and several springtime events feature cool activities for the kiddos.

Happy egg hunting, y’all!
