At Memorial Park, your family can potentially meet the Easter Bunny and enjoy a warm drink from Travelin’ Tom’s Coffee Truck.  Kids between the ages of 2 and 10 years will be allowed to participate in the egg hunt.  This will kick off at 10:30 a.m. for most participants.

In Whitestown, even infants can join in the fun.  In addition to the hunt, there will also be vendors and games, as well as opportunities to meet the Easter Bunny.  This event will run from 10 a.m. to noon.

The celebration at Lions Park will include an egg hunt with more than 25,000 eggs, food, face painting, and more.  You and your family can also meet the Easter Bunny, in addition to spotting Miss Indiana Princesses and Leo the Lion.

A fundraising breakfast will officially signal the start of the event at 9 a.m.  Then, kids can search for the hidden eggs, and perhaps even seek out hidden rubber duckies.
