Next two weekends to feature Easter egg hunts


Children are invited to scramble for eggs at the city's annual Easter egg hunt Saturday, March 23, at McCord Park, next to the Worthington Community Center.

The hunt will begin at 10 a.m., but families are invited to arrive at 9:30 for games and activities that will continue after the hunt.

SuperGames inflatables, carnival games and other activities will be featured.

The eggs will be filled with candy and toys. Egg hunt areas will be divided by the following ages: 3 and under, 4-5, 6-7 and 8-10.

The egg hunt will be held rain or shine, but other activities are weather-dependent.

The Easter bunny will hop around to visit all of the boys and girls, but no seated pictures with the bunny will be taken at the Saturday event.

For photos of children with the bunny, families are invited to attend Family Night at the Community Center on Friday, March 22, when the bunny will be available from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. just for pictures.

Free weekly Family Night features will include arts and crafts, one gymnasium for small children and the other for athletes of all ages. All children must be accompanied by an adult and vice versa.

The annual Colonial Hills Easter egg hunt will be at the same time as the city's -- 10 a.m. March 23 -- at the shelter house at Selby Park. If it rains, the hunt will be postponed until March 30.

American Legion Leasure-Blackstone Post 239 will hold its Easter egg hunt at 2 p.m. March 31, Easter Sunday, at the post, 700 Morning St. The event is for children ages 12 and younger and is billed as Post 239's "biggest Easter egg hunt ever," with prizes, treats and a visit from the Easter bunny. The egg hunt will be held rain or shine.
