12th Annual Egg Hunt
120 Park Lane, Holly Springs
Saturday, March 23
Egg Hunt begins promptly at 11 a.m.
Approximately 12,000 eggs will be ready for the children in 7 age categories.
"It takes about 20 to 25 people a half an hour to toss out all of the eggs," Stanley said.
She said they will have bunnies and chicks that children can pet. The Easter Bunny usually shows up around 10:15 a.m., and will be available for pictures before and after the egg hunt.
"Each family receives a complimentary picture of the event. And each child receives an age appropriate prize," she said.
This event is completely funded by sponsors. The presenting event sponsor is Northside Cherokee Hospital. Other sponsors include: Holly Springs Downtown Development Authority, North Metro Waste Cherokee Bank, Holly Springs Volunteer Fire Department and Paradyme Entertainment.
