AUSTIN (KXAN) – Spring has sprung! And though Friday was dreary, KXAN meteorologists are forecasting a mild, partly cloudy Easter – perfect for hunting down colorful treat-filled eggs left, in theory, by a large, cartoonish rabbit. 

If you’ve got kiddos who are keen to hunt down some eggs – or you’re an adult who still likes to partake in the celebration (I’m not here to judge!) – here is a list of some egg-celent Easter egg hunt opportunities around the area:
