Rachel’s Rundown: The best of what’s happening in and around Indy this Easter weekend
Easter Begg Hunt
Hamilton Town Center

The hunt starts at 11 AM and you can register that morning for just $5 (benefiting Every Dog Counts Rescue). Plus, they will even have some delicious baked treats from Titus Bakery for humans to enjoy!
