The City of Lebanon will be again be hosting the annual Lebanon Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 11, from 10 a.m. until noon at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center.
“Thousands of children look forward to our annual egg hunt,” said Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead. “It’s great fun to watch them find the tons of candy and prizes that our community generously donates.”
The Egg Hunt is for all ages, newborn through adult. The first hunt will begin promptly at 10:15 a.m. Local merchants are providing many prizes including lots of candy, several bicycles, games and other children’s toys. The free event includes the egg hunt, decorated egg contest and fire engine rides. Many prizes will be given for prize eggs found in each of seven groups, ages newborn to 23 months, 2 and 3 years, 4 to 6 years, 7 to 8 years, 9 to 10 years, and the “big kids” ages 11 to 111 years. Bags will be provided for children not having baskets.
Children should bring their decorated eggs for the decorated egg contest. Prizes will be given for the cutest egg, the most colorful egg and the ugliest egg. Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny will be on-hand for photos with the bunnies for a charge of $1. In the event of a rain-out, the hunt will be held Sunday, April 12 at 2 p.m. For more information, call 443-2839.
