Children to comb meadow in search of hidden eggs

More than 1,500 plastic Easter eggs filled with candy will be hidden in the Jeffrey Mansion meadow on Saturday, March 30, for Bexley's annual Easter Egg Hunt.

The event, hosted by the Bexley Celebrations Association and the Bexley Parks and Recreation Department, will begin at noon.

Parks and Recreation Director Mike Price said at last week's City Council meeting that once the horn sounds, the hunt lasts just a few minutes, so coming 10 to 15 minutes early and staking out a good spot is recommended. It will be held rain or shine.

Anyone in fourth grade or younger can participate in the hunt that draws between 300 and 400 children per year. The lawn will be sectioned off by age range to keep the hunt fair.

Parking for the event is available at the Jeffrey Mansion and Jeffrey Park lots as well as on Clifton and Parkview avenues.
