Park packed for Easter Egg hunt

PRESCOTT – Overcast conditions didn’t keep anyone from coming to City Park Saturday for the Prescott-Nevada County Chamber’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Hunting didn’t begin until 11:10 a.m., but people gathered under the pavilion to participate in the coloring contest, sack races, egg carrying competition and see how much cotton candy they could eat. The Prescott Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs were on hand, helping out with these competitions, and providing snacks before the hunt began.

First up was the 1-3-year-olds on the tennis courts. These toddlers were allowed help from mom and dad when it came to finding and gathering the eggs. This year, the eggs were filled with either candy or stickers. Next up was the 4-6-year-olds on the baseball diamond. Parents weren’t allowed to assist this group and weren’t needed as the children raced around the field gathering the eggs. The final group, 7-10, hunted at the playground and splash pad. Once they were given the green light, they wasted no time in hunting for and finding eggs.

Three golden eggs were hidden, one in each age group, with the winners getting an Easter Basket filled with goodies to take home. And, of course, the Easter Bunny was on hand to visit the children.
