    Let’s Go: Easter Egg Hunt at The Dinosaur Place

    Kids and families can get ready to stomp, chomp, and hunt for eggs like a real dinosaur: The 13th annual Dino Easter Egg Hunt is back at The Dinosaur Place in Montville on April 1.

    Dinosaur eggs of all sizes are waiting to be discovered in this prehistoric twist on the traditional egg hunt, with guaranteed prizes for all participants. Kids of all ages are invited; there will be enough eggs for everybody. The Egg Hunt will be divided into four age groups, so everyone gets a fair chance to find some awesome Dino Eggs. Each child will hunt for different sized eggs in a designated area just for their age group. (Don’t forget to bring your own basket.)

    In addition, egg hunters can meet the Easter Bunny (who will be available for family photos) and over 60 life-sized dinosaurs, and each participant will receive a wristband for all-day access to The Dinosaur Place.

    After children have collected their eggs, they can head over to the Dino Egg Redemption Center by the Splash Pad to claim a prize. Then they can keep the adventure going by strolling along 1½ miles of nature trails and discovering over 60 life-sized dinosaurs.
