Spring is coming and so is Easter, which falls on Sunday, April 21. Through April there are Easter egg hunts and other activities open to the community. While there used to be more large-scale, city-sponsored events, those have given way to more smaller, organization- and business-sponsored events.
Check out some of the Easter events that will happen in the North County this year:
