Hiller Park welcomes hundreds for Easter egg hunt

Florence Therapy and Wellness is hosting their annual Easter egg hunt at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 15, at Hideout Mountain Park on Florence-Carlton Loop. "It's always the first event of a very fun day for the city".

The Easter Egg Dash is a race for children to pick up as many eggs as they can after the whistle blows. Bring a camera to take photos of children with the Easter Bunny.

In between hunting for eggs, the kids were able to take pictures with the Easter bunny or enjoy the bouncy houses, all free of charge thanks to the city of Biloxi's parks and recreation department. Girls and boys bikes will be awarded in each of three age groups.

“The first annual [senior] Easter egg hunt, what a kick in the trousers, ” Bellissimo said.

Children ages 0-3 will hunt in the tennis court while those ages 4-6 will hunt east of the large pavilion.

The next event after the hunt was the parade.

The group of middle schoolers also helped scatter plastic eggs and assemble the age-specific hunt patches using string and stakes Sunday morning into early afternoon.

Contact the Northumberland Humane Society at 905-885-4131 or visit the Facebook page for more information on these events. "We plan to possibly video the hunt to stream online, so we ask parents to stay out of the egg hunt areas so that all children have the opportunity to find eggs".

With their growing family, Justin said he hoped the Egg Hunt would become a yearly tradition. The egg hunt is open to children through 12 years of age.

"That's what we want for our kids - just to be like every other kid and have the independence and joy that they find in special holidays", McCurdy said. Then you can head out onto the farm for egg hunts and a celebration of spring's warm weather.
