Peninsula residents can create a new family tradition with loads of happy memories by attending the eighth annual Spring Easter Egg Hunt hosted by PenMet Parks District.
The event is set for noon to 2 p.m. April 4 at Sehmel Homestead Park, 10123 78th St. NW, Gig Harbor.
The egg hunt areas are divided into age groups and flow continuously throughout the event so every child is guaranteed a chance to find eggs and win great prizes. Participants can avoid the noon rush and show up anytime before 2 p.m. People can also visit with the Easter Bunny and have a photo taken for a small fee.
The free Children's Petting Zoo is courtesy of Miracle Ranch. Atendees can also find more out about PenMets summer camps, get your face painted, snack on some of the light concessions and enjoy the fun.
There will also be a Tea with the Easter Bunny event in the Sehmel Homestead Park Pavilion. This special event will take place just prior to the start of the Easter egg hunt. Admission includes free 4 x 6 photo with the Easter Bunny, tea, cookies, juice, muffins and a special VIP Easter Egg Hunt. There will also be a special appearance from the Spring Fairy, who will stop by to read the children her favorite Easter fairy tale. Children can also enter to win in the Easter coloring contest. Cost is $8 per person, and tickets must be purchased in advance. All children must be accompanied by a paid adult.
No registration is required. A $2-per-child donation is suggested, with all the money going toward the event.
