In the City of Hazelwood, people are never too old to have fun hunting for Easter eggs. The Parks and Recreation Division will be offering both an Adult Easter Egg Hunt and an Easter Eggstravaganza for kids, ages 10 & under, this year. The Easter Bunny’s production crew at Valley Industries Sheltered Workshop is in the process of stuffing about 15,000 plastic eggs with candy, and some with prizes, for both events.
ADULT EASTER EGG HUNT
Hazelwood’s 15th Annual Adult Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for Friday, April 12, at White Birch Park, 1186 Teson Road, from 7 pm to 9 pm. The hunt grounds will be located in the back of the Community Center this year with parking available in the upper lot. All participants must be age 21 and over.
Tickets are limited and can be purchased at Civic Center East and the Hazelwood Community Center. They will be available until April 5th or until they are sold out. Ticket prices are $12 for residents or $15 for non-residents. Registration starts in the Warming Room behind the HCC building at 7 pm and the hunt begins at approximately 8 pm. Everyone on the hunt grounds must have a ticket and meet the age requirement.
Participants should bring a flashlight and a container to search for thousands of hidden eggs with a limited number of them containing pages. Each person will be limited to finding 12 Easter eggs and then turning them in. Some of the eggs will contain prizes such as household items, electronics and fun stuff like a pack of Sharpies or sports memorabilia. Other nice prizes that people might win include an adult bike, a fire pit, a crockpot, a Smokey Joe barbecue grill and a tool kit.
A DJ will be hand to play popular tunes throughout the event. Guests can bring their own beverages, coolers, lawn chairs, etc. But please leave the glass containers at home. The event will be held rain or shine.
