Over 2,800 Easter eggs will be hidden in Briar Creek Park waiting for local youngsters ages 10 and under to find Saturday as part of the Sixth Annual Williamsburg Community Easter Egg Hunt, which will take place starting at 1 p.m.
The children will be divided up into three separate age groups, 1-3 years, 4-6 years, and 7-10 years. There will be first, second and third place prizes in each age group.
“We have the eggs ready to be hidden and ready to go. We have 240 dozen eggs that is 80 dozen per age group,” noted Williamsburg Main Street Manager Nannie Hays. “We want the kids to have a good time. It is a good time for families to come out to enjoy.”
The Easter Bunny will also attend the event for those wanting to have their pictures taken with him.
In addition, there will be free hot dogs and water during the egg hunt.
Hays estimated that over 300 people attended the event last year when the weather was rainy and bad and she is planning for at least that many again this year.
“We just invite everyone to come down to Briar Creek Park and join us. This is for our community families. I think everyone will have a great time. You can’t go wrong when you have the Easter Bunny and Mayor Roddy Harrison at the same event,” Hays noted.
The City of Williamsburg, the Williamsburg Main Street Program and the Williamsburg Tourism Commission are sponsoring the event.
