The 36th annual Fishers Easter Egg Hunt will take place at 6:30 p.m. April 14 at Roy G. Holland Memorial Park. It’s hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Geist. Kids will have the opportunity to hunt for more than 9,000 candy stuffed eggs and take photos with the Easter Bunny.
Guests are encouraged to arrive early.
“We will be doing pictures with the Easter Bunny at 5:30 p.m. We’ll have a few bunnies around with which people can take photos,” KCOG President Kathleen Wiemold said. “We’ll have a donation bucket or two that people can drop a donation in for a picture. The hunt will go fast. If they are not there at 6:30 p.m. on the dot when we start, they’re probably not going to get eggs. We’ll have the bunnies hanging around for a good half-hour or so afterward for photos.”
Children will be divided into groups based on age to assist smaller children in finding eggs.
“We will have kids ages 2-4 in one diamond, 5-7 in another, 8-10 in another and then 10 and up,” Wiemold said.
This year there also will be special eggs with a ticket inside.
“A couple of the eggs are going to be stuffed with a certificate for a goodie bag. They can come turn in this certificate and get a special prize,” she said.
Preparation for the event was community driven.
“We started stuffing the eggs about a month ago or so. I’ve just been having events with Key Club members and Kiwanis Club members to help us all stuff eggs. We’ve had a lot help,” Wiemold said. “I’m very grateful for all those people that have helped us out. It’s been a community effort.”
