Who doesn't love a visit with the Easter Bunny? Ol Peter Cottontail will be hoppin' down the bunny trail to Wappingers Falls, NY soon. A kid's Easter egg hunt that had over 5,000 eggs in a park last year is set to return.

Fun Fact: Homer, Georgia held a record with 80,000 eggs, listed in the 1985 Guinness Book of World Records. The event in the small town of 1,100 people is an Easter Sunday tradition that has lasted 47 years. Although it no longer holds the record, the annual event has long been touted by Homer as the world's largest.

Easter egg hunts are often played outdoors, but can also be played indoors. Children typically collect eggs in a basket and prizes are given out after the hunt for various achievements, including the largest number of eggs collected.
