Big Easter egg hunt set for April 20 in Hawkins City Park


A 50-inch television, a Nintendo switch, two bouncy houses, and 11,000 Easter eggs are just some of the fun activities planned for Saturday, April 20, at an area-wide Easter egg hunt in Hawkins City Park.

Sponsored by Holly Brook Baptist Church, festivities will begin at 10 a.m. and end about noon.

All families in the area are invited.

If it rains, the hunt will be moved to Holly Brook’s Family Life Center.

Church members are filling 11,000 plastic eggs with small wrapped candy and the call has gone out for volunteers to help prepare for the area-wide Easter egg hunt. Bins to collect filled eggs are in the Family Life Center.

To hunt eggs, children will be divided into age groups with staggered starting times. The grouping will help ensure that younger children will not compete with older children in the egg hunt. About noon, there will be a drawing for the television and Nintendo switch. Winners must be present to win.

Holly Brook Baptist has also announced its Easter services schedule. An early service will start at 8:30 a.m., late service at 11 a.m. An attendance goal of 800 has been set.

Call the church office for more information: 903-769-2091.
