Spring is springing in Grand Junction, and many of our favorite activities for this season revolve around the upcoming Easter holiday. For the kids, that means waking up and finding their basket – what will be inside? Furthermore, there are egg hunts! Whether you’re having your own in the house (Pro tip: you might want to map out where you hide them all to avoid stinky summer surprises should one be overlooked) or not, you should think about getting out to one of the larger ones held around town. Here’s our roundup for Easter egg hunts in Grand Junction CO 2016:
