Two upcoming egg hunts include options for kids with special needs.

The town of Cary will host its second annual Easter Eggstravaganza from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday, at Fred G. Bond Metro Park, Field No. 4.

The hunt is designed for kids ages 12 and younger with special needs and other developmental or physical disabilities. Kids can bring along a friend if they need help. The event includes activities and entertainment after the hunt, along with a visit from the Easter bunny. Be sure to bring an Easter basket.

It is sponsored by Vintage Church.
