Eggstra! Eggstra! Read All About It!
Children, ages 9 and under, should start lining up at 9:45am or earlier. Parents are asked to keep children behind all lines and wait for the signal in order to avoid false starts and to be fair to everyone. A few reminders:
- Be on the lookout for the Easter Bunny hopping around.
- Bring your own basket to collect the eggs.
- Limit each child to 10 eggs.
- Remember your camera, too.
- Recycle your plastic eggs in the marked bins.
Candy has been made on equipment that also processes peanuts, nuts and wheat. If a child needs a non-peanut candy option, please see a Park District staff member wearing an orange vest. Lost children should be taken to a Park District staff member in the small pavilion.
Thanks is extended to all the volunteers who helped stuff more than 12,000+ eggs with candy and prize coupons. Special thanks goes out to event sponsors who help make this event a great success. Without their support, the Park District could not offer this free event to the community.
