The Palatine Jaycees will host an Easter egg hunt for children up to nine years old at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 12, at Towne Square on Palatine Road in Palatine.
"We will be hiding 3,000 Easter eggs filled with candy and prizes in the grassy area of Towne Square," said Jennifer Ramello, co-chair of the project. "We will divide all the kids who wish to participate into groups by age."
Ramello said each age group will be sent out separately to collect eggs.
In addition, the Easter Bunny will attend the event. Children can get their pictures with the bunny for a small donation, according to project organizers.
