All community members are welcome

The City of Kalamazoo is preparing for some spring fun with the annual Egg Hunt at Mayors’ Riverfront Park on Saturday, March 30. This event is free and will be held from 2-4 p.m.

The event will feature three egg hunts starting at 2:30 p.m., 3 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. The field will be divided into two age groups for each time slot (0-5-year-olds and 6-9 year olds respectrespectively). Each child will be given a wristband to help even out the number of kids for each hunt. Once a time slot is full, families will be added to the next one available.

Eggs on the field will be empty but kids can turn in the eggs they’ve collected for a bag of candy and toys. Some of these bags will have a golden egg, which can be redeemed for an addadditional prize.

While the egg hunt is underway, families can enjoy other activities and games while awaiting their turn. The Kalamazoo Growlers will have bounce houses set up and food will be on sale. Face painting and taking pictures with the Bunny and Growlers’ mascot Porter will also keep kids entertained.

While this event is geared towards families with children, all community members are welcome.
