City moves egg hunt event in anticipation of rainy weather

March 29, 2013


The threat of inclement weather has caused the city of Lawrence to move its Easter egg hunts scheduled for Saturday.

The city's longtime Egg Hunt Eggstravaganza is being moved indoors to the two Hy-Vee Food and Drug Stores in the city at 3504 Clinton Parkway and 4000 W. Sixth St. The event will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The event is free to children ages 3 to 12. Children who participate will receive a goodie bag.

Children who want to see an Easter bunny should be at the Clinton Parkway store from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. or the Sixth Street store from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

JW- You have the wrong information! The Easter Egg Hunt will not actually be at the Hy-Vee stores. The Easter Bunny will still visit Lawrence, but will be at the Clinton Parkway Hy-Vee from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Then at the 6th Street Hy-Vee from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. There will be treats for the kids at both Hy-Vee stores.

I was wondering how an Easter egg hunt could work in a grocery store since there would be about two million places to hide them.

When I was a kid my mom used to hide little foil-wrapped chocolate eggs and jellybeans all around the house. My sister and I would hunt for them but sometimes we'd miss a few. One year we found a few in July on top of some books in the bookcase.
