Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt in the Hills

The 2nd Annual Egg Hunt in the Hills is underway. But this is no ordinary hunt. It’s actually an Easter egg Scavenger Hunt—and it will have you tracking eggs down all around Vestavia Hills.

Here’s how it works:

On different dates and times, the Vestavia Chamber of Commerce will post clues to each hidden egg on their Facebook page. The first person to find each egg will win prizes donated from Chamber member businesses.

Find an egg? Post a picture of it and post it in the comments of the clue.

Don’t have Facebook? (Gasp!) You will need to call the Chamber Office within one hour of finding an egg, otherwise the egg will be void and a replacement will be hidden.

If the egg is at a business, you will turn it in to their staff to collect the prize.

Eggs found in public in public areas (the Library in the Forest, City Hally, etc.) will need to be brought to the Chamber Office to receive the prize.

Got it? Good. Let the hunt begin!

Homewood Parks Easter Egg Hunt

This Easter egg hunt will be a hit for older kids (ages 7-11). Why? Because it’s in the dark! So be sure to bring a flashlight to ensure you find those eggs.

Be sure to bring the younger kids (under age 7), too. There will be lots of egg hunting for them, too, before the sun goes down. There will also be prizes, a bounce house, games and, of course, the Easter Bunny. Here’s the timeline:
