It's almost time for Peter Cottontail to go hop-hop-hopping down the Bunny Trail. In 2014, Easter is Sunday, April 20. Some Easter Egg Hunts start as early as the middle of March so you better make plans now to hunt for the Prize Egg. If you know of other big Easter Egg Hunts, be sure to email me at dallas@aboutguide.com.
