Village to host 4th annual egg hunt

Published 10:33am Friday, April 11, 2014

SOUTH POINT — The Cross Community Church and the South Point Volunteer Fire Department are teaming up for a community Easter egg hunt.

The hunt will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday at the South Point Board of Education office. Children age 1 to 12 are eligible to participate.

“This will be the fourth year we have teamed up with the SPVFD to put on the hunt,” Trent Carpenter, pastor, said. “It’s always a great event and the kids always have a lot of fun.”

The children will be able to meet the Easter Bunny, play on inflatables and hunt more than 15,000 eggs with prizes inside.

“Every kid will come away with dozens of eggs that are filled with either a small toy, candy or a ticket to redeem a prize,” Carpenter said. “The prizes range from wiffle ball bats to bikes and scooters.”

A helicopter will also fly in and land on the field prior to the egg hunt to deliver candy to the Easter Bunny.

“It’s just another thing we can do to make it a more memorable day for the kids,” Carpenter said. “Everything is completely free. We just want to do something for the families in our community to make sure they have a great Easter.”

Parents can register their kids for the hunt the day of the event at 10 a.m. or they can register online by visiting
