Get ready to have an egg-cellent time at the annual McMinnville Parks and Recreation Easter Egg Hunt.

“We are really excited about it,” said McMinnville Parks and Recreation program coordinator Michael Benusches.

The annual egg hunt will be on Saturday, April 16 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will take place at the Jungle Jym and Hoover-Millraney Field. It is $3 per child to participate and there will be five different age group with designated egg hunt times.

The egg hunt is for children up to 14-years old and Benusches says younger children can participate with the help of a parent.

• The first age group is 0-2 and will be at 9 a.m. at the Hoover-Millraney Field.

• Ages 8-10 will start at 9 a.m. at the Jungle Jym.

• Ages 3-4 will start at 10:45 at the Hoover Millraney Field.

• Ages 11-14 will start at 10:45 at the Jungle Jym.

• Ages 5-7 will start at 12 p.m. and will hunt at the Jungle Jym.

Children can be pre-registered for the egg hunt up until April 12. Pre-registering allows McMinnville Parks and Recreation to know how many kids they might have on event day and can be done by visiting Milner Recreation Center up until the deadline.

“We just like to try and keep track of our numbers, so we encourage pre-registration, but dayof registration is available as well,” said Benusches.

Children can register the day of the egg hunt at the child’s designated time as well.
