PADUCAH, Ky. (4/7/14) — Like to hunt for candy-filled Easter eggs?
The Paducah Parks Services Department’s Annual Easter Egg Dash is a race for children to pick up as many eggs as they can after the whistle blows.
Children will race with their age groups to pick up 13,000 candy-filled eggs that are spread across the ball fields.
Bring your Easter baskets or a sack because there will be plenty of eggs to collect. Three prize eggs will be hidden on each field.
The free event will be Thursday, April 10 at Stuart Nelson Park.
Registration begins at 5 p.m. Age groups will dash in 15-minute increments beginning with the 0-2 year olds at 5:45 p.m. Age groups for the Easter Egg Dash are 0-2 years, 3-5 years, 6-8 years, and 9-10 years.
Registration also is available online at www.paducahky.gov or at the Parks Services office.
Due to the popularity of this event and the number of vehicles expected in Stuart Nelson Park, Park Rangers and Parks Maintenance staff will be directing traffic and managing the parking. The disc golf course and the dog park will be closed on April 10 from 4:30 until 7 p.m.
