Columbus Parks and Recreation co-sponsors this hunt with a local radio station 1010 WCSI. It’s a 50+ year partnership. Typically have over 3000+ eggs and additional prizes for the kids. All the age areas are marked with flagging & signage so parents know which area their child needs to go to. We do not have any registration for the event. Each age area has an egg or 2 with a “grand prize coupon” that they redeem for a larger prize. Each year the larger prizes are different, it depends on what local businesses donate. All age groups start at the same time, 10:00am. The hunt only lasts a couple of minutes, but it’s fun! Folks usually start arriving around 30-45 minutes ahead of time to get a good spot around the areas. We have the local sheriff’s dept., police dept., and Columbus Fire Dept. here at 9am with police cars & fire trucks for the kids to look at before the hunt starts. The Easter bunny is also here to greet the kids & have pictures taken with them.
