Troutman Community Easter Egg Hunt rescheduled for Wednesday, April 17
BY DEBBIE PAGE
The Town of Troutman Parks and Recreation Department invites kids of all ages to its second annual Community Easter Egg Hunt on Wednesday, April 17, at 5:30 p.m. at Troutman ESC Park. The event was postponed on Sunday due to weather concerns.
"We recognize that there are some families that are concerned about getting to the egg hunt immediately after work tomorrow, so we have tried to shift things around a little to try to make this work for as many as possible,” said Parks and Recreation Coordinator Emily Watson.
"Starting at 5:30, the Easter Bunny, bounce house, face painting, Wilson's Weenie Wagon, and Southern Treats Ice Cream Truck will be here! At 6:30, we will start the hunts -- all ages. After the hunts, you are welcome to hang around until dusk and continue to enjoy the park, playground, and above mentioned.”
"I hope this helps to give families a little more time after work and childcare,” added Watson.
Kids should bring their own baskets to fill.
Kids who find one of the six special golden eggs will win a grand prize Easter basket filled with toys and treats. Those who find one of 24 speckled eggs will also win a special gift bag.
The main event is split into three age groups. The egg hunt for children ages 3 and under will be in the field in front of dog park. Ages 4 to 8 will look for eggs filled with treats on the park’s playground, and kids 9 and older will search on the paved walking trail within park.
The department will have numerous volunteers in place on the day of the event to direct families to the correct area.
Southern Treats & Full Belly Deli has donated thousands of eggs and beautiful prize gift baskets to make this event a success. Pat Parker and her staff have filled the eggs with treats and prepared dozens of beautiful prize gift baskets.
