It's getting to be that time of year when thoughts turn to dying eggs with beautiful pastel colors and then hiding them for the little ones to find.

Well, The Union Leader has you covered this year with a massive list of Easter Egg Hunts throughout the state of New Hampshire. Some of these egg hunts are family-oriented, while others are strictly for the adults!

Keep in mind that the list will be updated as more events get announced or if there are any changes, additions, deletions, etc to the schedule. You can get the most up to date list by keeping in touch with the Union Leader and checking back frequently.

Some of the spring fun starts this weekend. The following is taken from the Union Leader's website:
