Egg Hunt Moved Indoors

Due to adverse weather conditions, Jamestown’s 66th annual Easter egg hunt will be moved inside the Allen Park Ice Rink on Saturday.

The free event is for children ages 12 and under.

There is a significant difference in the way the children will be allowed into the hunt. The age groups will remain the same, but only one group will be allowed inside the ice rink at a time starting at 10:30 a.m. Once a group has found all the eggs hidden for their hunt, volunteers will hide the eggs for the next group. The first age group allowed in will be children 4 and under, followed by children ages 5 to 8 years, and finally children 9 to 12 years of age.

More than 3,000 eggs will be hidden in the hunt area, including two gold and two silver eggs that are sponsored through a donation in memoriam of Mark Hess. Thirty additional prize eggs will be added to the area. The Easter bunny will arrive by fire truck to kick off the event.

Also sponsoring the hunt are the Sertoma Club of Jamestown, Allen Park Women’s Club, Morton Club, Kendall Club, Northwest Savings Bank, Jamestown Babe Ruth League, Jamestown Bowling Company, McDonald’s, Wendy’s Media One Group, and Linda Crossley at Esquire Cleaners.
