Spring parks event promising ‘hopping’ good time


Families looking for some Easter fun can hop on over to Dr. T.K. Lawless Park from noon to 2 p.m. April 1, as the Spring Egg-stravaganza returns to Cass County.

Co-hosted by the Cass County Parks Department, The Friends of the Cass County Parks, Cass County 4-H, and Great Start Collaborative, the event will feature thousands of eggs for little ones to find throughout the park. 

“Our community has always given us ‘egg-cellent’ support of our spring event, but we are a little reluctant to trust Mother Nature this year, so we are keeping our fingers crossed for an amazing day,” said parks department representatives. “Hopefully we will have some warmer temperatures (and no more snow) to help our little hunters find the thousands of soft candy filled eggs that will be hidden through the fields of Lawless Park!”

To ensure everyone has the best opportunity to be successful finding eggs, the hunt will be divided into two groups:

• Ages 2-4 will be held at 12:30 p.m. (approximate time)

• Ages 5-10 will be held at 1:30 p.m. (approximate time)

During the event, admission to the park will cost $2 per person, or one canned food item per person. All canned goods will be donated to a local food pantry. 

In addition to the egg hunt, attendees will also be treated to an inflatable slide, face painting, crafts, wagon rides and a bonfire. Sure to be one of the highlights of the day, the Easter Bunny will be making special appearance for photo opportunities and interaction with the participants. Parents are encouraged to bring their cameras and video equipment to capture the meet and greet.

“As participants find out from time-to-time, rain and snow can sometimes help to make the event rather ‘egg-citing’ and unpredictable to say the least, so please dress appropriately,” parks officials said. “Rest assured we will have the fireplace going with plenty of hot food and beverages available to help warm the body and soul.”
