Easter will be coming a little bit early this year for those who choose to attend the 5th annual Great Easter Egg Hunt and Candy Throw-Down hosted by Wendlee broadcasting and Brookshires Food and Pharmacy. The egg hunt will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 30 at Coggin Park at the pavilion area.

The Easter egg hunt will be broken into age groups and divided into three separate and independent hunts. Pre-k and under, kindergarten through first and second through third grade will each hunt for the prized Easter eggs.

“We have over 17,000 pieces of candy,” said Joe Haynes of Wendlee Broadcasting, “Brookshires donated all of the candy for the hunt.”

The egg hunt will have fun activities planned other than the hunt itself. There will be face-painting, pony rides, a bounce house, Heartland Cruisers, Firetrucks, Bruners Toyota will be there cooking hot dogs, Dr. Pepper and the Easter bunny will be there providing photo opportunities for all in attendance.

The fun and activities isn’t limit to just those. There will are activities planned for older children as well and adults. There will also be activities for kids of all ages.

All who wish to participate are asked to bring their Easter basket or a bag to carry their collected candy. The Easter egg hunt is free of costs for all activities including food and activities.
