9 places to go on an Easter egg hunt
Hop on over to Calabasas’ Juan Bautista de Anza Park for this annual Easter egg hunt. The “bunny trail” ($3) takes youngsters on a search for Easter eggs with face painting, crafts, a petting zoo and time with the Easter Bunny along the way.
Celebrate a laidback Easter on the waterfront at the Easter Hoppening in Malibu Bluffs Park. This all-inclusive event offers fun for the entire family, with different egg hunts every 20 minutes for specific age ranges. The searches are free if you donate a box of crayons; just bring a basket—and a camera. After unearthing your loot, enjoy some of the other activities; arts and crafts, food trucks, photos with the Easter Bunny and cartooning for kids will be on offer, plus bounce houses and face painting (for a small fee).
Partake in one of several Easter egg hunts along with bounce houses, facepainting, arts and crafts and more during this kid-friendly, Downtown celebration at the FIDM-adjacent Grand Hope Park. You’ll have to pay for entry, but street parking around the park is free on Sundays. New City Church of L.A. is organizing the event and putting the proceeds toward helping homeless children in DTLA.
Search for Easter eggs on one of the most iconic grass fields imaginable: the Rose Bowl. The Pasadena stadium hosts its annual Easter celebration with face painting, balloon animals, Easter Bunny photo ops and more than 80,000 eggs laid out on the field.
The L.A. County Arboretum is unleashing lots of eggs—and Easter puns—on its Arcadia grounds. The festivities occur throughout the day with an egg scramble and egg-expedition; members can get in an hour early.
Pet real bunnies and search for hundreds of candy-filled eggs hidden throughout the Galvin Physics Forest at this Pasadena celebration. Create spring art, learn the bunny hop and pet real bunnies with the Bunny World Foundation. The Easter egg hunt will be closed off to regular museum patrons, so you’ll need to pre-register for a time slot to participate.
Take part in an afternoon of free kids entertainment and Easter egg hunts at Pershing Square, starting with a hunt for those under 4 at 12:30pm.

Disneyland presents a twist on traditional Easter egg hunts with the monthlong scavenger hunt throughout its two theme parks and Downtown Disney. Dozens off Disney-themed “eggs” have been hidden throughout the park; you can record your discoveries by marking them with a sticker on a limited-time map—return it all filled out and you can pick up a special surprise. Maps and stickers can be purchased for $5.99 (plus tax) at locations throughout the park.
Make the trip to Moorpark for an Easter festival at Underwood Family Farms. Admission includes a tractor ride and a photo op with the Easter bunny, but you'll have to buy additional tickets for the Easter egg hunt, toss and dying.
