2014 Easter Events and Activities in Volusia County - Daytona Beach, Port Orange


It's that time of year again! Time to take your little ones to some Easter egg hunts and activities. Here is a list of local ones that you can check out. 

The plastic Easter eggs that people use are generally not biodegradable. Please save them to donate back to the place doing the egg hunt, give them to a teacher, or reuse them yourself. If you do not need them please don't trash them. Plastic pretty much stays in the environment forever, so we need to do what we can to reduce, reuse, and recycle the millions of plastic eggs used each spring around the country! There are environmentally friendly versions available (here), but it may be a little late to order them. Keep it in mind for next year. Here is an article on having a environmentally friendlier Easter.

Note: Most of these celebrations are free family event. Donations may be appreciated. Also, your child should take a basket to put their eggs in during the hunt. Some Easter egg hunts are divided by age groups (so that a 4 year old is not doing it with a 12 year old).
