Check in will begin at 9:30 a.m. This fun and enjoyable event consists of one egg hunt for small dogs at approximately 10:15 a.m. and a separate egg hunt for big dogs at approximately 10:25 a.m.

A souvenir photo with a bunny mascot, eggs filled with treats, goody bag, and raffle entry are included in the registration fee. In addition to the egg hunt, participants will have the opportunity to visit with community sponsors. All owners must always have a leash and an eye on their dog.

All dogs must be wearing a current rabies tag and Palatine residents must wear the Village of Palatine issued license tag to participate in this event or they must leave the area.

"This is something fun and unique for both the owner and their dog," said Lisa Schroeder, Special Interest coordinator for Palatine Park District. "It's a great way to get out and enjoy the fresh air, while socializing with many different community sponsors and dog lovers."

The preregistration fee is $8 per dog until Friday, April 12 at 4 p.m., and will increase to $10 per dog the day of the event. Registration is accepted online at palatineparks.org or in person at one of three District registration offices, Birchwood Recreation Center, Community Center and Falcon Park Recreation Center.
