Step aside, Easter Bunny; your special brand of creepy is not welcome here. The Great Chicago Egg Hunt draws its inspiration from the olden days, with noble knights taking the place of any oversized rabbits.
But alarming mascots aside, this egg hunt is aiming for epic status, with 10,000 candy-filled eggs ready to be snatched up by kids 2-12. To prevent any Dark Ages’-style injuries between eager candy chasers, the egg hunt will take place in waves—but you might still want to remind your kids not to be greedy with their sweet spoils.
The Medieval-themed festivities include an opening parade of knights on horseback, sword-fighting demos, photo ops with the Medieval Times’ queen and fun knights-in-training activities for the 6-12 set. And in keeping with more traditional springtime happenings, there will be crafts, games, face painting and other family fun all morning long.
