Kokomo Parks & Recreation Department officials announced plans Monday to host two Easter egg hunts this year — one for kids and one for adults.
The kids’ event, for children 10 and under, will be free to the public, and start at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 31 at Northwest Park, 1600 W. Judson Road.
The kids will be grouped into three age groups — toddlers 3 and under, children ages 4 to 6, and children ages 7 to 10.
All children must be accompanied by an adult, and the kids will need to bring their own basket/bag.
All of the eggs are candy filled, and there also will be some prizes given away by finding a number slip inside selected eggs, parks officials said.
Once a child finds a slip, she or he can bring it to a designated table to claim a prize. The Noontime Kiwanis will be donating the grand prizes in each age division as well as volunteering. For more information, please contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 765-456-7275.
And for the adults ...
The parks department will be hosting its third annual “Adults Only Easter Egg Hunt,” starting at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 31 at Jackson Morrow Park, 4200 S. Park Road.
The hunt is for participants over age 18 only. Wristbands for the event are $5, and can be purchased in advance at the parks department headquarters in Highland Park. Hours to purchase a wristband will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. this week through Friday, then again starting Monday through Friday, March 30, or on the day of the event from 5 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. The number of wristbands will be limited, and wristbands are first come, first served.
The hunt takes place in the dark, so participants are strongly advised to bring a flashlight.
As with the kids’ hunt, all of the eggs will be candy filled, and some of the eggs will contain prize slips. Participants will need a number slip and/or your wristband to claim a prize.
