Children likely will excitedly and eagerly scoop up colored eggs with candy and prizes inside at the annual Christy Haberstroh Easter Egg Hunt in a few weeks.

The popular activity, which in the past has brought out hundreds of parents, grandparents and family members to Brandon Park will take place from 2 to 3 p.m. March 28 near the Dr. Kenneth Cooper bandshell, said Janis Holmes, executive assistant to Mayor Derek Slaughter.

The event is open for all children up to the age of 10.

A rain/snow date will be the same time on April 4.

Traditionally, the Easter Egg Hunt is a passage into spring, with and a great way to begin the holiday celebration.

Recreation officials say there will be candy, filled eggs and special prizes. Volunteers spend hours preparing the packages for the happy event.

This year, the city is asking for participants to bring their own basket or bag.

These type of carriers give the children a safe place in which to hold their eggs they find in the lawn and make it easier for parents/guardians to ensure the products are safe.

Children participating in the activity will be broken up by age into five divisions as follows: one and two, three and four, five and six, seven and eight, and lastly nine and 10.

Furthermore, no Easter celebration would be complete without a visit from the Easter Bunny with plenty of photo opportunities.

Other questions about the event can be directed to Holmes at 570-327-7566 or jhomles@cityofwilliamsport.org.
