Kiwanis Club of Tempe to host Free Community Easter Egg Hunt at Kiwanis Park on April 19
More than 8,000 prize-filled eggs to be scattered at Saturday event
The sixth Annual Tempe Community Easter Egg Hunt will be 9 a.m. Saturday, April 19, at the North Soccer Field at Kiwanis Park, 6111 S. All American Way, Tempe.
The free event is open to all children age 10 and under. Every child will get a prize.
More than 8,000 plastic Easter eggs filled by students from Tempe High School with prizes, items and stickers inside will be scattered on the field. Children of two different age groups – 5 and under and 6-10 – will be turned loose to gather up as many eggs as they can until all eggs are collected. Prizes will be redeemed by the children when they turn in their eggs.
The Easter Bunny will also be roaming and available for pictures.
Tempe High School Key Club will be on hand for face painting and arts and crafts starting at 8 a.m. The event will continue until 10 a.m.
“We did it the last four years and it has been a huge success,” said Mike Jennings, egg hunt co-chairmen. “With the tough economic times, who doesn’t like a free event?”
Young children must be accompanied by parents. All children are encouraged to bring their own baskets or sacks to collect eggs.
