The city of Mercer Island will host two egg hunts on Saturday, March 31.

The Lil’ Ones Egg Hunt will begin at 4 p.m. (1-3 year olds) and 5 p.m. (4-6 year olds). Hop on over to Mercerdale Park for the annual Eggstravaganza Egg Hunt just for the little ones. The city’s resident bunny has been hard at work putting together eggs, candy and prizes for everyone and plans to make a special visit to the egg hunts to say “hello.”

Bring a basket and your sweet tooth and get ready to hunt for goodies. Find a golden egg for the “eggstra” special surprise. Please, no children over the age of 6. No registration required. Suggested fee: $5 donation per family.

The Flashlight Egg Hunt will begin at 8:30 p.m. for older kids. This one is done in the dark and was created exclusively for older kids. Bring your flashlight and a basket to haul off your loot. Lots of eggs, candy and prizes for everyone. Find the golden egg during the eggstravaganza for an “eggstra” special surprise. No parents on the field. No registration required. Suggested fee: $5 donation per family.

The egg hunts are sponsored by Kitchen Plus, John L. Scott and Mercer Island FC.
