The Annual Kiwanis Easter Egg Hunt will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, April 20 at the Emmett City Park near the bandshell. The Easter Bunny will arrive by fire truck, delivered by local city firefighters.
Kids can have their photos taken with the Easter Bunny or get faces painted or temporary tattoos. Free cotton candy and popcorn will be given away by members of the Orchard Church.
There will be five age-group Easter Egg Hunt Areas this year: Ages 0-1 will begin first with one parent per child allowed in the egg hunt area if necessary. Ages 2-3 will begin second. No parents will be allowed in the egg hunting area. Ages 4-5 will begin third with no parents allowed in the egg hunt area. Ages 6-7 will begin fourth and Ages 8-10 will begin after all previous groups are done.
To help keep some expense down for next year’s event, the Kiwanis club will have large containers to put the plastic eggs in after the candy and prizes have been emptied. The Easter Egg Hunt is event made possible by countless volunteers in our community.
At the event, the Kiwanis will have tickets available for their annual scholarship raffle. Tickets are $10 each and the winner will receive a $499.50 Gem County Shopping Spree. All funds will go toward the scholarships given to graduating seniors.
