Easter egg hunt at Brandon Park to feature prizes, firefighters
The city’s Recreation Department will be having a COVID-friendly Easter egg hunt for children ages 10 and under, with various prizes for all of the age groups on March 27 at 2 p.m.
“The city fire department will be there as well…they will sound their horn and that will kick off the Easter egg hunt,” said Kayla Drummond, recreation coordinator.
There may even be a surprise guest appearance from the Easter bunny.
“All we are asking for parents and children is to bring their own basket or bag and to wear a mask,” Drummond added.
There will be various prizes as well as all of the candies and trinkets that the kids will find in the eggs.
The kids will also be split into different age groups, with the little ones around the band shell.
Drummond said that there will be thousands of eggs to find in each age group and six eggs in each group will have a golden coin with a number on it. The numbers will correspond to a larger prize that ranges from chocolate bunnies, stuffed animals and larger basket prizes.
“Every year our event grows and grows,” she said. “It’s wonderful. It is super exciting and nice to be able to get the community out of their houses and in our local historical park.”
She added that she’s excited for the community to witness the beauty of Brandon Park but also the interactions between the kids.
The city Recreation Department and committee, as well as City Hall employees, city council, the Brandon Park Commission and STEP AmeriCorps all helped make this event possible after last year’s cancellation due to COVID.
The rain date for this event will be Saturday, April 3. For more information, please visit the Facebook event page at City of Williamsport Easter Egg Hunt.
