Maryknoll Park will be chock full of plastic eggs on Friday, March 30, as Glen Ellyn Park District presents its annual "Eggs-trodinary Egg Hunt."

Children ages 6 and younger will search the grounds for colored eggs stocked with candy and other prizes. "Special eggs" will be redeemable for larger prize baskets. Registered children should come prepared with their own baskets to keep their eggs in.


There are two egg hunt times scheduled. Both the 9:30 and 11 a.m. hunts have open spots for eager egg hunters.

All children must be accompanied by an adult, but only children need to register. All participants are asked to check in with the egg hunt staff before the event.

This year's "Eggs-trodinary Egg Hunt" is sponsored, in part, by Glen Ellyn Bank & Trust.

The hunt will feature a special guest -- the Easter Bunny. Children can meet the bunny and have their picture taken. Remember to dress for the weather, as the outdoor egg hunt will go on rain, snow or shine.

For older egg hunters seeking a challenge, the park district presents the Flashlight Egg Hunt from 8:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 29, at Churchill Park, adjacent to Churchill School. This hunt is for kids ages 7 to 10.

Children should bring baskets and flashlights and dress for the weather. The fee is $6 for residents, $9 for nonresidents.
