Major points to know for the egg hunt, according to 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.

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.
