Every year before Easter Sunday, local nonprofit K.A.R.E. for Kids hosts a community Easter egg hunt for children in the community. This year will be no exception, as the organization is planning a day of fun with 40,000 filled Easter eggs and other fun activities for the whole family. Here’s all you need to know about the upcoming event.
The story continues below.
This year’s egg hunt will take place on Saturday April 8 from noon to 3 p.m. While previous years’ events have been held at Veterans Memorial Park, the 37th annual egg hunt will be held this year at the city’s Main Street Park, located behind Dawsonville City Hall.
The main attraction will be the egg hunt, which will include 40,000 filled eggs and be divided up into age groups. The age groups will be: ages zero to three and handicap (one parent may assist), ages four to six, ages seven to nine and ages 10 to 12. Each age group will have its own part of the park designated to that age group’s egg hunt.
In addition to the egg hunt, the event will also feature concessions available for purchase from the Dawson County High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) club, four bounce houses and a Kona Ice truck.
Food sales and activities will begin at noon, and the egg hunt will begin promptly at 2:30 p.m.
