One of the best things about March in Wisconsin is that people are really just OVER IT with winter and are ready to think spring! Even if there is still a chill in the air and some lingering snow on the ground, you are sure to find some great egg hunts and other events around the Milwaukee area to enjoy with your family. And who knows….it wasn’t that long ago that we hit the 80s in March!
Be sure to check out websites to confirm all event details.
Happy egg hunting and happy spring!
