‘I spy’ Eggstra eggs

The 21st annual EGGnormous Egg Hunt will offer something this year that it has never done before — the chance to find more than 13,000 eggs in Lions Park.

The event will begin with a breakfast at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 7, in Lions Park. The egg hunts will start at 10 a.m. and will be staggered by age groups.

“I am EGGcited as always to start our 2012 event season for Lions Park with the EGGnormous Egg Hunt,” said Co-Eggmaster Leigh Ann Akard. “It’s a thrill to see all these families come out to enjoy fun in the park. It gets us all ready to jump into our next five events.”

Co-EggMaster Tara Worthly says this year is all about the eggs.

“We are EGGstatic to report that this year, we have more eggs than ever,” she said. “(More than) 13,000 eggs will be hidden throughout the park. We can’t thank enough those families that EGGcycle after the event. This has helped us to have a bigger and better hunt year after year.”

Also new this year is the St. Vincent Kids’ Bureau of Motor Vehicles booth that will be giving out child identification cards.

For the second year in a row, Marsh Supermarkets is providing a “Fresh Idea” breakfast with healthier options, including fresh fruits, granola bars, raisins, bagels and juice in exchange for a donation to the park.

Other events repeating this year include free photographs with the Easter Bunny, sponsored by Carpenter Realty; balloons, sponsored by The Goddard School; face painting and a coloring contest, sponsored by Small Blessings; Peyton Manning Children’s hospital tent alongside Kids’ BMV; and mascots such as Roarie the Lion, St. Vincent Bear, Flex from Mite-E-Duct and more.

Control Tech Heating and Air and Mite E Ducts will hide very spEGGcial Eggs in the park and the Zionsville Merchants Association will drop more than 400 rubber ducks for EGGstra surprises.
