Easter Egg Hunt – Sat., April 15, 2017 (9:30 a.m. start)

Our Annual Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at Rotary Park located at 2200 Mayberry Loop Road in Morehead City. The egg hunt activity areas are divided into three sections by the following age groups: 4 & under, 5-8, and 9-12. NO PETS PLEASE!

Although thousands of eggs will be in each age section, kids tend to clean up these toy and candy-filled eggs much faster than they clean their rooms!! Plan to arrive early because the youth usually collect all the eggs in less than two minutes. DON’T BE LATE!! For more information call 252-726-5083.
