MUSKEGON, MI – It’s spring and the Easter season. Families have been isolated by more than two years of COVID-19 restrictions, making this a perfect time for Muskegon to gather outside for a community Easter Egg Hunt.
The City of Muskegon’s Community & Neighborhood Services Department is hosting the Easter Egg Hunt Saturday April 9, 2022 in Downtown Muskegon’s Hackley Park from 10 a.m. to noon. Hackley Park is located at Third Street and Clay Avenue.
All children to age 12 and their families are invited to join the community to celebrate outside in a safe manner. The event is designed to provide information for children and families on the latest COVID-19 directives and, of course, have some fun.
“We are now able to bring the community safely together in Hackley Park to celebrate spring,” said Oneata Bailey, Muskegon CNS director. “We still need to inform and educate children and families on COVID-19. An Easter Egg Hunt is a great way to accomplish both.”
Public Health Muskegon County will be participating with other agencies to provide information and answer questions. Muskegon CNS is using a small portion of its federal emergency COVID-19 funds to sponsor the event.
There will be thousands of eggs filled with treats to hunt in the park. There will be opportunities for photos with the Easter Bunny, face painting and other outdoor activities.
Plenty of free give-a-ways can be picked up at the nearby Muskegon Farmers Market, 242 W. Western, including market veggie vouchers, child-sized KN-95 masks, and outdoor sporting equipment for the children. While supplies last, youngsters can pick either a jump rope, basketball, soccer ball or football.
