Thousands of eggs (yummy, mouthwatering Egg-so-Lindt chocolate eggs) are waiting to be discovered everywhere… underneath the wings of airplanes… on the pathways… and (whaaat?) even next to flying saucers!

It’s yours to keep. Kids, bring your parents (and show them how it’s done). Arrive early to create and decorate your paper basket! Details

7. Kip Moore

Over the last couple of years, Moore spent most of his time on the road, building one of country music’s most loyal audiences show by show and plotting what would become his sophomore album, Wild Ones. He was a road warrior, living out of a tour bus with his bandmates and playing more than 200 shows per year. For a songwriter who’d grown up in a quiet pocket of southern Georgia, performing to crowds across the world — crowds that knew every word to his best-selling debut album, Up All Night — felt like a dream come true.
