If your children are clamoring to go to an Easter egg hunt and you’re not up to the task of filling plastic eggs and hiding them in your yard, we’ve got a list of hunts all over the Valley area.
One local Easter egg hunt is back after an almost 15-year absence. The Wynn House, 1240 Wynnton Road (across from the Columbus Museum), will welcome candy-seeking children Saturday.
Margie Richardson, the president of the Wynn House board of directors, remembers attending the hunts as a child.
“I remember dressing up,” she said. “That’s what we did back then. The Easter egg hunt used to be a staple, especially in the Overlook area, but people would come from other parts of town.”
Richardson said no one on the board could remember why the Easter egg hunt was discontinued. The board considered bringing the hunt back last year, but ran out of time. This year, plans began much sooner.
“We hope it will be well attended,” Richardson said.
“And parents will want to bring their cameras because the Easter Bunny may make an appearance,” said Georgia Brown, a member of the board.
The two chairs are Arden Cheney and Courtney Ellis.
The hunt is 4-6 p.m. Saturday. The hunt begins at 4:30 p.m. for children 12 and younger. There are three age divisions for the hunt (infant-2; ages 3-7 and ages 8-12).
It’s open to anyone, though children need to be accompanied by an adult.
Besides the hunts, there will be face painting, a cake walk, hot dogs for sale and an instrument petting zoo.
It costs $5 per child, with proceeds benefiting the Wynn House. Call 706-323-1895.
