Saturday offers full day of Easter Egg hunts in Valdosta, Hahira

Easter Egg hunters, get your baskets ready for a Saturday full of activities in Valdosta and Hahira.

More than 6,000 eggs will be hidden for the communitywide Easter Eggstravaganza beginning at 10 a.m. at Drexel Park in Valdosta. Each age group — 2-5, 6-9 and 10-12 — will be able to hunt for a prize egg.

Ages 12-14 may also compete in a scavenger hunt.

Games and vendors will be complemented by live entertainment, pony rides, a cake walk, face painting, a petting zoo, train rides and a costume contest.

For information about the Eggstravaganza, call Kathy Wortham at 259-3507.

The Fifth Annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by Anthony Williams and Marcus Haynes kicks off at noon at Taylor-Cowart Park.

A bike ride beginning at 11:30 a.m. at Sonny’s BBQ in Lake Park will lead to the park for the opportunity to see the Easter Bunny and beloved characters Big Bird, Shrek and Winnie the Pooh. The Valdosta Fire Department and college football players also will be joining in the fun.

Along with giveaways including Easter baskets, Wild Adventures passes and bikes, there will be free pizza and Coca-Cola for the kids.

The City of Hahira is also asking Easter Egg hunters to bring their baskets to Pick-In Park for the Hahira Eggarama beginning at noon. Registration for the event starts at 11 a.m.

Age groups are infant to 2 years old, 3-4, 5-8 and 9-12, with one prize handed out for the person who collects the most eggs in each age group. For infants to age 2, one parent may assist.

Along with the egg hunting, the fun will include games, face painting, a bounce house and pictures made with the Easter Bunny.

Those who attend are asked to park in the corner field on Union and Main streets.

For information, call Helen Petitjean at (229) 794-3274.
