Whether you're in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Chanhassen, Bloomington, St. Louis Park, Blaine, Burnsville or any other part of the metro, there's an egg hunt for you this weekend.

What's happening: Highlights of this weekend's festivities include the North Loop Candy Grab, which features age-specific hunts and "parent eggs," the 50th & France party in Edina with appearances from the Easter Bunny, and the James J. Hill House hunt, where eggs are scattered throughout the historic St. Paul home-turned-museum.

  • All are on Saturday morning. North Loop and Edina's hunts are free, James J. Hill House's is $8/person.

Plus: Eden Prairie is hosting an adults-only egg hunt all Easter weekend, featuring 200 eggs filled with coupons and prizes that have been hidden at nine local businesses.
