The fourth annual do-it-yourself Easter egg hunt is planned for April 16 at 1 pm in the historic NDG Park, corner of Girouard Ave. and Côte St-Antoine Rd.
According to the Facebook event page, “One group of parents will stay with the kids in the playground area and try to distract them while the other group hides the eggs in the sloping area down to the statue. After all the eggs are hidden we let the kids go chase them — we give the little ones a head start.”
Once a child has found six eggs, parents will ask them to help to help others.
Parents are asked to bring eight plastic easter eggs per child, stuffed full of small prizes such as erasers, stickers etc. Candy is acceptable also, but no nuts due to potential allergies. Kids are limited to finding six eggs because nobody is excluded, notes the event page. If park-going families weren’t aware of the event but want to participate, they are welcome. The hope is to have extra eggs on hand for the extra kids that may particiapte.
Weather-appropriate clothing is recommended as is monitoring the event page because, if rain is predicted, the event may be preponed to April 15 instead. Either way, the hunt will be over by 2 pm, so make sure to get there on time. Happy hunting!
