Annual Egg Hunts Take Place This Weekend
This weekend, Easter bonnets will turn into sleuth hats as Tallahassee kids scout high and low for surprises during the City’s annual Easter Egg Hunts.
On Saturday, March 31, the Eggstraordinary Easter Egg Hunt, which is designed for children with special needs, will take place from 1-4 p.m. at Messer Park North, 2830 Jackson Bluff Road. Sessions for children with differing abilities will be held throughout the afternoon.
The first egg hunt of the day officially starts at 1:30 p.m. and is designed for children with varying abilities. This is a fun time for children with a range of abilities and their siblings to enjoy the hunt together. The next session will begin at 2 p.m. for children with visual impairments. They will be able to find eggs using their ears. The 2:30 p.m. session is designed for children who use wheelchairs or walkers. They will be able to find magnetic eggs. The last session at 3 p.m. will be for children who have sensory issues and prefer to hunt Easter eggs in a quiet, calm environment.
At the egg hunt on Saturday, children will also enjoy bounce houses, crafts tables and refreshments. To volunteer or pre-register your child for the third annual Eggstraordinary Easter Egg Hunt, please contact Allison Behrman at 891-3885 or allison.behrman.
The following day, Sunday, April 1, the City will host the 59th annual Easter Egg Hunt in Myers Park, 913 Myers Park Drive. From 1-3 p.m., families will enjoy an eggciting afternoon complete with games, crafts and music. The egg hunt begins promptly at 2:30 p.m. Children participating in the Easter Egg Hunt should bring their own baskets, bags, etc.
Both egg hunts are free and open to the public. Pictures with the Easter Bunny will be available beginning at 1 p.m. at both events.
