Peter Cottontail Returns Saturday, April 15th!
Last year’s Easter Egg Hunt was on a very snowy day! No matter, the show must go on – so we moved inside, the Park & Recreation kitchen for the youngest age, and the Aspen Mine center for the middle two age groups. The oldest kids were, as usual, in the upstairs fitness center for their glow-in-the-dark hunt.
Each age group has color coded eggs, hidden in specific age group areas, so there’s no mix ups of older kids picking up easily spotted eggs meant for little ones. To be fair within the ages, we count the number of kids per age group to decide how many eggs each kid can pick up, so no one can hog them all. Once they find their eggs, they head to the arena to swap eggs for prizes and take pictures with the Easter Bunny!
We have special golden eggs, two per age group. These do not count towards each child’s egg count, and they’re very special eggs – when the kids are redeeming their other eggs for prizes, they head to the Golden Egg Table, where they swap the golden egg for a $5 bill.
Get in the Easter spirit ahead of time by stopping by Parks & Recreation to pick up a coloring sheet for our contest! There’s a different design for each age group, and each age group winner receives a prize basket! In order to enter, the colorings must be returned to Parks & Recreation the day before the hunt, Friday, April 14th.
This year’s hunt is Saturday, April 15th. Line up starts at 12:30pm, and the hunt begins at 1:00pm. If the weather is good, line up will be in the Circle at Parks & Recreation. If it snows, we will have a foul weather location set up. From there, we’ll let you know where your age group is hunting, and we’ll walk you over when the hunt starts. Staff members and volunteers will be in each area to help and count eggs. Be sure to see if your kids won the coloring contest!
