Sue Kiesewetter reports:
More than 4,000 plastic eggs filled with candy will be hidden throughout Liberty Park for Liberty Township’s March 30 Easter egg hunt.
The 10 a.m., hunt at the park, located at 6757 Yankee Road, behind the Lakota Family YMCA, is open to children ages 1-8. They will be divided into four age groups to hunt for eggs.
Children ages, 1 and 2, will be sent to the field when the horn is sounded at 10 a.m. One parent will be allowed to escort their child.
Once the children have collected eggs, staff will set up for the 3 and 4 year olds who will hunt for their eggs, at 10:30 a.m.
When they have finished, eggs will be put out for the 5 and 6 year olds who will begin at 11 a.m. The final group, 7 and 8 year olds will begin looking for eggs at 11:30 a.m.
Each hunt should last 5-10 minutes with 20 minutes to set up for the next group and distribute prizes.
Children may bring a basket, bag or other container to collect the candy-filled eggs. Some of the eggs will contain prize tickets, with one grand prize being awarded in each age category. A child may only receive one prize.
The Easter Bunny will roam the field, hand out candy and be available for pictures from 10 a.m. to noon in the first picnic shelter. Parents should bring cameras for pictures.
In case of inclement weather the hunt will move to inside the adjoining Lakota YMCA, 6703 Yankee Road.
There is no cost for the egg hunt and advance registration is not required
