Release, Town of Leesburg:
Grab your basket, hop on over and join the Leesburg Parks and Recreation Department for the 22nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 12, 2014, from 12:00pm to 4:00pm at Ida Lee Park!
This year, the Easter Bunny will be hiding over 16,000 eggs filled with candy and special prizes for one through seven-year-olds throughout Ida Lee Park. The hunts will be held by age group: 1 year olds, 2 year olds, 3 year olds, 4 year olds, 5 year olds, and 6-7 year olds. One parent will be allowed to assist children ages 2 and under. All other age groups will hunt without parents. Each hunt will have one Grand Prize egg and the lucky hunter will receive a basket full of candy, prizes, and toys.
In addition to all our egg hunt options, there will be UNLIMITED rides on a jumbo slide, jump climb & slide, obstacle courses, face painting, and other amusements. Food vendors will be on site or families are invited to bring lunches to enjoy a picnic at their favorite spot in the park. Families should also remember their cameras for great photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny.
