If your family is like ours, you didn’t win the White House Easter Egg Roll lottery. The disappointment is now at a 7-year streak, but hey, that’s okay. There are definitely other Easter Egg hunts around the area to keep you entertained this holiday weekend. Here are three (one in DC, one in Md., and one in Va.) unique Easter Egg Hunts for you to consider if you’re sticking around this weekend.
