    How important is it to line up ahead of time for the Thriftway hunt? Sounds like there’s lots of eggs out.

      NBC – there have always been big crowds in line outside the store. I don’t know how early, but by just before nine, both entrances usually have lines (of course it’s always up to the folks at the store to decide how they manage the traffic/queues)…

    Where in Lincoln park is the Eastridge egg hunt taking place? I have a two year old so he is too young for the community center ones (and Thriftway sounds like it might be crazy) So I am interested in the one at Lincoln but can’t find anything beyond a mention of it on their website. Anyone have any more specific info? thanks!

    We always get there early, so the kids can get there share of eggs! They also let youngest to oldest in order…

    NBC- we have gotten lines around the building the last two years. Getting there early is always a good idea. We’ll have free coffee for parents while they wait in line.

    The good news is it will be sunny and sort of warm!

    The one at Lincoln Park is by the south playground, in the grassy area. You won’t be able to miss it! We went last year and it was very well run, tons of eggs and space for many, many kids. We took our two yo and four yo last year, and they weren’t overrun by the big kids.

    The West Seattle Farmers Market will also have baby chicks and bunnies for looking (sorry, no touching)and lots of fun prizes inside those hidden easter eggs…

Sorry, comment time is over.
