LINCOLN SQUARE — The Easter Bunny's going to be one busy rabbit this weekend, with "eggstravaganzas" planned by a number of community organizations.

North Center's 26th annual egg hunt kicks off at 10 a.m. Saturday in Town Square, 4100 N. Damen Ave.

Youngsters can pick up a map of the participating neighborhood businesses that will be handing out candy and prize-filled eggs. The event also includes a Spring Ahead Hat Contest, so start bedazzling your best bonnet.

Fido gets in on the action at Horner Park's 10th annual egg hunt for dogs at 10 a.m. Saturday at the park, 2741 W. Montrose Ave. A highlight for spectators is sure to be the doggie bonnet parade because the only thing cuter than kids in hats is dogs in hats.

Chase Park, 4701 N. Ashland Ave., has multiple egg hunts for kids of various ages, plus crafts and face painting, starting at 10 a.m. Saturday. All activities are free.

The safest egg hunt in town is sure to be the Foster Police District's. Children 8 and under are welcome at 10 a.m. Saturday at 5400 N. Lincoln Ave.

Bring a camera to Hollywood Park's egg hunt, where you'll want to capture photos of the little ones with a "special guest" Saturday at 3312 W. Thorndale Ave. The start times for the egg hunts are divided into four age groups. Two-year-olds and younger get first crack at 10:30 a.m., while 9- and 10-year-olds are the last group at 11:15 a.m.

Old Irving Park Association's event was in doubt for a while but volunteers stepped up to the plate and the annual egg hunt is most definitely on. Head to Disney II Magnet's playground, Grace and Keystone avenues, at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Winnemac Park, 5101 N. Leavitt St., is going rogue, holding its egg hunt on Sunday. Meet in the park's playlot at 9 a.m. The event is BYOB — bring your own basket.
