Rochester, MN is an eggs-ellent place to be during the Easter season, with Egg Hunts, Easter Bunny photo opportunities, and other fun events occurring around town! There are indoor egg hunts for kids in area churches and stores, and outdoor egg hunts (rain or shine) in parks, on a farm, or on a trolley tour. While most of these events are geared toward kids and many of them are free, adults can "hoppily" partake in their own Adult Easter Egg Hunt at Salem Glen Winery. Get your baskets ready and check out local Easter Egg Hunts and other fun Easter events between now and Easter Day.
