Easter Egg Hunts in the Lincoln-Way Area - 2019
The Lincoln-Way area, located in the far southwest suburbs of Chicago, is made up of 4 main communities ... Manhattan (my hometown), Mokena, New Lenox, and Frankfort.
Each of these four towns and their surrounding areas has seen major population and business growth over the last few decades. Over that time, residents have seen big change. There are increased services available from all levels of government and business certainly, but outlets and opportunity for much more have also arrived in the area.
Spring and Eastertime provide ample showcasing of that being fact. Each of the four communities, once again, is offering local residents multiple options to enjoy and celebrate the season. The number of Easter Egg Hunts available for enjoyment is just one example.
Each year I share the info from many of the venues and municipalities offering residents Easter Egg Hunts. Below you will find many of this year's events being hosted within Lincoln-Way Area borders. Please note that some are strictly for children and families, while others focus solely on adults or dogs.
I have tried to provide links to additional information pertaining to each event. As weather can be very fickle at this time of year, please use these links (and others) and make sure to check on your event prior to heading out.
Happy Spring! Happy Easter!
