This year’s Rock Island Spring Egg Hunt is Saturday, April 9 at Lincoln Park. While it is free, children ages 3-10 will need to be pre-registered to attend.
Thousands of colorful eggs will fill Lincoln Park, at 11th Avenue and 38th Street, on Saturday for the annual Rock Island Parks & Recreation Spring Egg Hunt at 9 a.m. The hunt areas will be for pre-registered children from the same family to hunt for eggs together.
Each area will be limited to 100 participants so make sure to register early as spaces will fill up. Bring your bags and baskets to gather eggs scattered throughout your hunt area. Dance to some silly songs while you wait and keep your eye out for a special bunny visitor to wave to! The egg hunt will begin promptly at 9 a.m. Do not be late, as eggs are only available for a short time!
If weather is questionable, call the rain line that morning at (309) 732-RAIN. Rain date will be April 10th. This event is co-sponsored by Rock Island Township, South Rock Island Township, and Metronet. Register for free online at www.rigov.org/ePark or call (309) 732-PARK.
