Town of Cary Easter Egg Hunt- Spillway (Grassy Area at Bond Park)- 12 p.m.

The Town of Cary Holiday Events page  calls this an “eggstravaganza.” First of all, for this classic Easter tradition, the children will split into two separate age groups and all eggs will have fun surprises inside. Furthermore, some of the eggs have a “winner” ticket inside. Thus, the eggs with a “winner” ticket are redeemable for a  special prize at the conclusion of the hunt. Major points to know for the egg hunt, according to townofcary.org are:

  • Hunt area divided into two age groups: 5 & younger and 10 & younger
  • Collect as many toy-filled eggs as you can
  • Check the eggs before you leave. Special eggs may have a “Winner” certificate in them redeemable for a special prize. Prizes must be claimed the day of the egg hunt. Will donate unclaimed prizes or reuse in other programs
  • Keep the plastic eggs or return empty eggs (same day only) for future egg hunts.

Egg Hunt for Special Needs Children- Bond Park Community Center-12 p.m.

Parents and special needs children 12 and under, view this is as a favorite of  Cary Holiday Events. Your child can bring a buddy to help hunt for the prize-filled eggs. Also, bring a basket and a smile for a fun-filled time for those with special needs, developmental, or physical disabilities.
