It’s time again to hide brightly-colored eggs and watch our kids squeal with delight as they find them. It’s one of my favorite parts of spring! Buying and hiding all those eggs, however, can be a task. Instead, head to one of these local, public Easter egg hunts in Tacoma and throughout Pierce County. The whole family will enjoy the outing, and you won’t have to worry about running over an unfound egg with the lawn mower.
