Just in time to welcome spring, the Henry County Parks and Recreation Department will once again hold its annual Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt, to be held at Nash Farm Park on Friday, March 22 from 5:30 until sundown.
Henry County’s Easter Egg Hunt is a fun-filled event for families and children to visit beautiful Nash Farm Park and hunt for candy-filled Easter eggs in a non-traditional way-- after the sun goes down!
Festivities begin at 5:30 where children of all ages will jump into fun with make-and-take coloring crafts, games and more. There will also be bounce houses for the kids and a petting zoo. In addition, Radio Disney AM 590 will be there from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m., offering tons of music and prizes.
Egg hunting will begin at 7:00 p.m. for children ages two through five, and the Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt will begin at sundown for ages six through 12, with the Easter Bunny dropping eggs from a helicopter above. Prizes will be awarded for those who find the golden egg. Don’t forget to bring your flashlight as well as your sweet-tooth, because each egg contains a candy surprise inside!
Participants may have pictures taken with the Easter Bunny for $10 and face painting will be available for a fee. Concessions will also be available for purchase.
This year’s Flashlight Easter Hunt is being provided through the generous sponsorship of SBZ Services Unlimited, Inc. and People First of Henry County.
