Soldier Field Egg Hunt Overview:

This year marks the sixth annual Spring Egg Hunt in Chicago's Soldier Field.

More than 4,000 adults and children are anticipated, so get your children's grabby hands ready for roaming the actual playing field and hunting for their fair share. You'll get to watch from the stands and maybe see your kid on the stadium's jumbo TV screens.

The event requires that participants make reservations for the accompanying brunch. The "candy grab" follows without an additional charge. It is for children ages 10 and under.
