Troutman Community Easter Egg Hunt set for April 14
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 Sunday, April 14, at 2 p.m. at Troutman ESC Park.
A visit from the Easter Bunny, a bounce house, and lots of entertaining activities will create an afternoon of free family fun. 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 the dog park. Ages 4-8 will look for eggs filled with treats on the park’s playground, and kids 9 and up will search on the paved walking trail within the park.
Numerous volunteers will be in place on the day of the event to direct families to the correct area.
Southern Treats & Full Belly Deli has again donated thousands of eggs and beautiful prize gift baskets to make this event a success.
Pat Parker and her staff have been working hard to fill the eggs with treats and prepared dozens of beautiful prize gift baskets, according to Parks and Recreation Coordinator Emily Watson.
“We can't thank them enough for all they do for this community.”
Watson plans for the event to go on unless there’s a deluge of rain that afternoon. Last year’s misty conditions did not hamper the fun, but she hopes for a warm, sunny afternoon of Easter celebration activities.
