Spring has sprung in Cincinnati — and this is most evident by the number of upcoming Easter celebrations. And these aren’t the egg hunts we had as kids — these hunts happen at the Zoo and Museums; underwater and aboard trains; at the crack of dawn or by flashlight at night. Easter is April 9th — and the weekends leading up to this spring holiday are packed with egg-celent egg-stravaganzas in all corners of the city! So pop some Peeps, grab your camera — and get ready for lots of fun!
Here is our 2023 guide to Easter Egg Hunts in Cincinnati:
