Families with children 5th grade and younger are invited to kick off Easter weekend with an Easter Egg Hunt. There will be separate egg hunts based on the age of the child, held at different intervals allowing each group quality time in a safe atmosphere. The four age-group divisions are: 2 and 3 year olds, pre-k and kindergarteners, 1st–2nd graders, and 3rd–5th graders. All children will exchange their eggs for candy and there will be some “special” colored eggs that can be exchanged for “special” prizes.
While one age-group is enjoying their egg hunt, the others will have fun doing awesome activities including: carnival games, inflatables, balloon artists, face painting, puppet shows, free cotton candy, snow cones and a concession stand. Hope to see you there!
When: Sunday, April 5
