It's THIS SATURDAY! The Annual Easter Egg Hunt awaits you and your kids
Saturday, April 8th at 10:30am at Reservoir Park! Imagine a green field filled with thousands of brightly colored eggs just waiting to be scooped into the baskets of excited little kids- that’s the magic of the Annual Maple Leaf Easter Egg Hunt. (Don’t forget to bring your own baskets!)
Fairview Church and Bethany Community Church have partnered again this year to offer Maple Leaf families a dazzling array of Easter fun. The kids get to scramble around the fields searching for 6,000 brightly colored treasures while the adults socialize. On the agenda: delicious kid-friendly foods, face painting, balloon art, and various backyard BBQ type games for all ages.
The grassy field by the picnic area is sectioned off into different hunting grounds where children of similar ages are grouped together to level the playing field a bit. Kids aged 1-10 years old will be separated into age groups (1-3, 4-6, and 7-10 year-olds). The 18-month-old newbies who haven’t quite yet learned the magic of an Easter Egg hunt are separated from the 9-year-old seasoned veterans who come ready to strategize and maximize their bounty. The hunt events happen in phases so that parents can watch all their Littles scavenging. The hunts are usually announced on a loudspeaker, so if you’re participating in other events, you’ll have some warning to get to your hunt arena.
• Bring a couple “secret” eggs hidden in your pocket or purse just in case your child isn’t as aggressive as some of the old-timers.
• The eggs are typically filled with nut-free pre-wrapped candy, but there’s usually some special eggs a few lucky hunters will find that have prizes or cash!
• Each hunt phase happens pretty fast, so be ready to start once the signal is given.
We’ll see you Saturday, April 8th at 10:30am with bright-eyed and bushy-tailed little ones and baskets in tow!
