Wellington Egg Hunt April 19

The Wellington Preservation Coalition and the Jacobs family join the Village of Wellington to sponsor the 2014 Easter Egg Hunt.

The event has become a village tradition over the years, and that tradition will continue on Saturday, April 19 starting at 10 a.m. at the Village Park softball fields on Pierson Road.

The event has grown each year, with about 3,000 participants expected.

“There will be 40,000 eggs hidden between the four fields, each filled with toys and candy,” said Tom Wenham, executive director of the Wellington Preservation Coalition. “We are pleased to help the village sponsor this important event, and we absolutely love to see the old-fashioned traditions continue in our village.”

The Egg Hunt will be divided into four age groups: ages 2 and under, ages 3 to 4, ages 5 to 7 and ages 8 to 10. At each egg hunt, two eggs will have a pink bunny ticket inside, indicating a special prize.

Families are encouraged to arrive early as traffic congestion may occur. Other event sponsors include Bright Horizons Early Education & Preschool and Premier Family Health & Wellness.
