Combine Easter egg hunting with support for local merchants at the beloved Saline tradition Eggstravaganza! on Saturday, March 31. Parents and their kids 12 and under first go to the egg hunt’s starting point at Busch’s Fresh Food Market to pick up an egg hunt trail map. They then visit each stop on one of three routes — between 12 and 15 stops — to pick up a plastic egg with a toy or candy in it, and to get a stamp on their map showing they’ve made the stop. All three trails end at Mickey’s Dairy Twist, 751 W. Michigan Ave., where those who complete the map can enter in a drawing for the big prize, a basket of goodies from area merchants. Three winners will be chosen. “Kids and parents have a blast,” says Mary Alice Smith, project coordinator. “But what’s just as fun is that this gets people into local businesses that they might not otherwise be aware of.” Make sure little ones keep their eyes peeled for the Easter Bunny, who’s been spotted along the way in previous years. Free. 11am-4pm. The hunt happens all over Saline; starting point at Busch’s,
565 E. Michigan Ave., Saline. 734-429-4494.
