One Dawson County charity is gearing up for one of the most anticipated events of the year.
The 29th Annual K.A.R.E. for Kids Easter Egg Hunt festivities will begin at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the Veterans Memorial Park football field, off of Hwy. 9 North. The organization invites the community to come out for a lunch of hotdogs and more.
"K.A.R.E. for Kids is excited to host the community egg hunt once again," said K.A.R.E. for Kids President David McKee. "Several local churches, parks and recreation and Dawson County FFA look to provide a family fun event this Saturday."
The Easter Bunny will be available for pictures, as well as train rides, inflatable play houses, face painting and a mini-hamburger eating contest.
"We have over 20,000 eggs, bounce houses, train rides, the Easter bunny and much more fun for the kids," McKee said. "I am honored to have a part of this great event."
K.A.R.E. for Kids would like to remind participants that the egg hunt will begin promptly at 2:30 p.m. and for participants to arrive at least 30 minutes early with their basket in hand in order to snag the perfect location.
The hunt will be divided into five age groups: 0-2 (plus special needs), 3-4, 5-6, 7-9 and 10-12. One parent may assist in the 0-2 category.
All proceeds will go to K.A.R.E. for Kids.
