Spring has been very fickle this year, but I think it has finally sprung. Easter, on the other hand, will be quite early this year. Because of this, some of the egg hunts have taken place already, but there are still a few that you can check out – including egg hunts for adults! The first adult egg hunt, Night Hunt, will take place this evening, March 29, in the Leland Municipal Park in Leland, NC at 7:30 PM. This rock themed music event invites those 21 years of age and older to enjoy music by Trial by Fire. Wear your best rocker outfit and bring a flashlight. For those 50 years of age and older there will be a Master’s Division egg hunt. Alcoholic beverages and food trucks will be available. Tickets will be $5 and pre-registration is required at: apm.activecommunities.com/townofleland. Search for Special Event – Night Hunt.
