It’s Easter season, also known as the only time of year where it’s normal to spot brightly colored eggs sprawled across lawns or intricately placed in secret alcoves and other hiding spaces.
If your kiddo is hopping (wink, wink) to do some Easter egg hunting, there are several options just within the Indy Parks system.
