Beckett Blencoe, 2, son of Ashley and Jiles Blencoe, searches for eggs during an Easter egg hunt in Crabapple last year.
The hunt is on for Easter eggs in north Fulton. The Easter bunny will make several stops in Alpharetta, Roswell and Johns Creek next week, and children are encouraged to participate in the local egg hunt extravaganzas. Check out the following community events for the family in celebration of Easter.

Johns Creek: The Johns Creek Recreation and Parks Division will host a community Easter egg hunt for children ages 10 and under. This free event will be March 24 at the main soccer field at Newtown Park at 3150 Old Alabama Road. Pre-hunt activities, such as face painting, a petting zoo, a moonwalk, children’s activities and photos with the Easter Bunny, will begin at 12:30 p.m.
The egg hunt will start at 1:30 p.m. Participants are asked to bring their own Easter baskets and parents must bring their own cameras for pictures.

Alpharetta: The city of Alpharetta Recreation and Parks Department will host its annual Children’s Easter Egg Hunt co-sponsored by the Alpharetta Golden Age Club. This free event will be March 23 at 11 a.m. at the North Park softball fields at 13450 Cogburn Road.
Only children ages 3 to 10 will be allowed to participate. Children ages 2 and under will receive a special Easter surprise since there is no designated hunt area for that age group this year.
