What sort of spring egg hunt excites you? The traditional kind? One that’s paired with a pancake breakfast and artisan bazaar? Or one that invites the kids to go underwater?
The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District has them all in April at Beaverton-area recreation centers:
Rain or shine, children 10 and younger will scatter across the field behind the center in search of eggs. The hunt begins at 11 am, with start times staggered for each age group. Participants are encouraged to arrive early to register and sign in; at 10:30, they can have their picture taken with the bunny and enjoy doughnuts and hot chocolate. Prizes will be awarded for the lucky ones who find specially marked eggs. This year, the Garden Home Community Library will offer crafts throughout the event and host a free viewing of the family movie “Wall-E” at 12:15 pm.
The event kicks off at 9 am with the pancake breakfast and artisan bazaar, the latter of which will feature a wide range of local vendors selling metal art, baked goods, and much more (admission is free). The parent and child egg hunt (for ages 1-3 years) starts at 10 am, followed by an 11 am start for ages 4-8 years and a noon kickoff for ages 8-11 years.
“This event is our way of connecting to the community and providing a safe, fun and affordable experience for the entire family,” said Lindsay Bjork, recreation center supervisor.
The Beaverton Police Department will be in attendance at both the Garden Home and Cedar Hills egg hunts.
