City ready for Easter Egg hunt

   The Easter Bunny is stopping by a little early for Bay City’s youngest residents.
   The City of Bay City’s Annual Egg Hunt will be from noon – 3 p.m. Good Friday, April 2 at LeTulle Park.
   “All are invited to enjoy an afternoon of egg hunts, photo opportunities, prizes, spring fun, and of course, the opportunity to meet the Easter Bunny,” said Parks and Recreation Department Supervisor Kelly Penewitt.
   “Children up to 10 years old will be able to take part in the City’s now-famous `egg scrambles’ for treat-filled eggs and extra prizes from the prize booth and free pictures with the Easter Bunny – don’t forget your camera.”
   Children with special needs will also be able to join in the fun of the egg scrambles at the “Beeping Bunnies” egg hunt area.
   This area will include beeping and talking eggs for children with special needs hidden among the hay.
   All egg hunts and event activities will be free and open to the public and refreshments will be sold.
   This year’s egg scramble schedule will be:

  •     Ongoing throughout the event for special needs children
  •     Ongoing throughout the event for three-year-olds and younger
  •     12:30 p.m. for four-year-olds
  •     1 p.m. for five year olds
  •     1:30 p.m. for six-year-olds
  •     1:45 p.m. for seven-year-olds
  •     2 p.m. for eight-year-olds
  •     2:15 p.m. for nine-year-olds
  •     2:30 p.m. for 10-year-olds

   Parents should note that each scramble lasts about one minute and is not repeated so children should be at the scramble for their age group on time.
   “When not hunting for eggs, other activities offered throughout the afternoon will include bounce house and moonwalks and small carnival-type games,” said Penewitt.
   “All egg hunts and event activities will be free and open to the public.”
