Hop to Lake Boren Park for April 19 egg hunt
After a brief hiatus, the Lake Boren Park Easter egg hunt returns April 19.
In the past, the hunt was a pre-Newcastle Earth Day festivity. Volunteers from the Olympus Homeowners Association hid about 500 eggs at the 2011 event.
The fun begins at 9:30 a.m. April 19, just a half-hour before the Newcastle Earth Day event opens. Families should arrive early, since the plastic eggs go fast, Newcastle Earth Day chairwoman Grace Stiller said.
“It takes hours to prepare, and then the kids get their eggs in just five minutes,” she said.
After children collect their eggs, families are encouraged to stay and enjoy the Earth Day activities from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Easter egg hunt is sponsored by Newcastle Dentistry in coordination with the Olympus Homeowners Association.
