More than 18,000 eggs will be hidden in Lions Park March 31 for the annual EGGnormous Egg Hunt, hosted by the Zionsville Lions Club and the 2018 Partners in the Park.

Breakfast will be available starting at 9 a.m. for all guests who make a donation to the park. Starting at 10 a.m., children ages 2 and younger will be guided around the park’s gazebo to hunt for eggs. Egg hunting begins at 10:30 a.m. for children 3 to 4; at 10:35 a.m. for children  5 to 6; and at 10:40 a.m. for children 7 and older. Pre-registration is not required.

“Other than a donation for breakfast, it is 100 percent free to participate,” said Mike Heffner, chair of the egg hunt committee. “We fill 18,000 eggs for this event and work very hard to make it a fun morning for all the kids that attend.”

Besides hunting for eggs, participants can enjoy free face painting, photos with the Easter Bunny, games and more. Local businesses, such as Akard True Value Hardware and Indy Eleven, will place more than 300 rubber ducks throughout the park, which children can redeem for prizes.

The egg hunt is one of many annual events put on by the Lions Club each year, from July Fourth fireworks to hayrides in the fall.
