    Children rush from the starting line during an Easter egg hunt.

    Pastel-colored eggs camouflaged by spring-green grass can be difficult to find. Luckily, Easter egg hunts themselves are far from hidden in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.

    Easter falls on Sunday, April 5 this year, but spots in D.C., Maryland and Virginia will host Easter egg hunts spanning from March 28 to April 12. Most hunts are coupled with other springtime, family-fun activities like face-painting, raffles, live animals (including "Easter" bunnies!) and hayrides, to name a few.
