The City of Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department’s 2018 Egg Hunt will be held inside the Civic Center (1403 Oak Ridge Turnpike) on Saturday, March 24, at 11 a.m. due to expected heavy rain in the forecast.

Over 15,000 candy and prize-filled eggs will be given away in the gym and prizes will be randomly distributed. Hundreds of children and their families are expected to participate in this annual spring event.

Families should arrive early and assemble in the Civic Center gymnasium prior to 11 a.m. Participants will be divided into separate age groups. The hunt is targeted for preschool-aged children (4 years old) up to fourth grade. Recreation and Parks Department staff will make a reasonable effort to provide appropriate accommodations for special needs.

All volunteers should still be prepared to work from 9 a.m. to noon on the day of the event and should dress according to the weather. A pizza lunch will be served to all volunteers immediately following the event.
