The Kiwanis Club of Greater Fishers will conduct its 38th annual Easter Egg Hunt April 20 at Roy G. Holland Park.
The Kiwanis Club of Fishers was established in 2018 after the Fisher’s Station Kiwanis Club disbanded in 2016. The club’s mission is to improve the lives of children one community at a time. The annual egg hunt is just one way the group seeks to help children in the Fishers community.
The event begins at noon with an appearance by the Easter bunny.
“The day will start with the Easter bunny arriving at noon for photos with the kids,” said Rick Fain, committee chair.
The egg hunt, which will happen rain or shine, starts at 1:15 p.m. Kids will have the opportunity to search for more than 10,000 candy-filled eggs. Children will be divided into age groups.
“The age groups will be second grade, first grade, kindergarten and toddler,” Fain said. “Each age group will be on its own separate ball diamond. That way the smaller kids are able to find eggs without the big kids grabbing them all.”
Each age group will include one grand-prize egg. Grand prizes are typically stuffed animals.
“Typically, if it’s nice out we can see as many as 2,000 people,” Fain said. “If the weather’s bad it can be as little as 500.”
Kiwanis Club members and Key Club members from Fishers High School spend several hours stuffing the eggs for the family friendly event.
The event is free to but donations are accepted. Registration isn’t required.
