It's Easter egg hunting season. Time for the young'uns to fend for themselves and search for eggs, armed with baskets and their hunting prowess. The strongest scavengers will reap the most candy-filled rewards, as nature intended.

The weakest? Don't feel too bad for them. There are plenty of eggs to go around. And besides, egg hunts are only part of the festivities. Most Easter events offer several other activities and an appearance from a certain fuzzy bunny. But which are the best Easter events for kids in Miami? New Times has got you covered.
