PITTSBURG, KS – The Pittsburg Parks & Recreation Department will host its tenth-annual Easter Egg Hunt, 11:00 am Saturday, April 6, at Lincoln Park and Don Gutteridge Sports Complex. This event is free to children ages 0 – 9 years.
Hosted by the Pittsburg Parks & Recreation Department and sponsored by the Pittsburg YMCA and Pittsburg Area Young Professionals, this event draws families with young children each year to collect Easter eggs stuffed with candy.
To make the egg hunt fair for each child, separate zones will be designated for children in each age group. Children with special needs will meet at Carnino Ball Field. Kids 0 – 2 years will meet at Stice Ball Field; 3 – 5 years at Russell Ball Field; 6 – 7 years at J.J. Richards Band Dome; and 8 – 9 years will be just west of J.J. Richards Band Dome.
The event is expected to go quickly, with all age groups hunting for eggs at the same time in each location. Parents and caregivers who plan to bring multiple children of different ages should plan ahead and bring extra help.
In the event of inclement weather, participants are encouraged to call the Pittsburg Parks & Recreation weather hotline at (620) 232-PARK (7275), or visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/PPRD1 for updates.
