Event: Free Community Easter Egg Hunt – April 20

FREE! ANNUAL COMMUNITY EASTER EGG HUNT

April 20th, 2019 at 10:00 am sharp – Don’t be even a minute late!

Come One, Come All! Rain 🙁 or Shine ☀!!

On Saturday, April 20, Cross of Glory will again host its annual neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt. We’ll divide the kids up by age groups and have filled plastic Easter eggs for them to find. After the hunt, everyone is invited inside for food, crafts and cookie decorating. And the Easter Bunny will be around the whole time for some photo ops.

The event starts promptly at 10 am, and given how fast kids can move when they are looking for eggs, you’ll want to be there a bit early. This event is for the entire community, and we’ll have over 2000 filled eggs!! So bring your neighbors and friends, and don’t forget an Easter basket to hold your eggs..

If weather permits, event is held outdoors. But if the weather is bad, we move inside!
