JAMESTOWN – The City Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department has announced the 66th Annual Easter Egg Hunt will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 30th at Allen Park. Due to current weather conditions, the hunt will be located inside the Allen Park Ice Rink. We will let in one age group at a time to find eggs. The three age groups are children 9 to 12 years of age, children 5 to 8 years of age, and children 4 and under.
Over 3,000 eggs will be “hidden” in the Hunt area, including two Gold and two Silver eggs that are sponsored through a donation in memoriam of Mark Hess. Thirty additional prize eggs will be added to the fun. The Easter Bunny will arrive by fire truck to kick off the event. The Jamestown Community College Student Ambassadors Program helped stuff the other 3,000 eggs with candy.
Also assisting in the sponsorship of the Hunt is the Sertoma Club of Jamestown, Allen Park Women’s Club, Morton Club, Kendall Club, Northwest Savings Bank, Jamestown Babe Ruth League, Jamestown Bowling Company, McDonald’s, Wendy’s Media One Group, and Linda Crossley at Esquire Cleaners.
All children 12 years of age and under are invited to attend. For more information, contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 483-7523.
