Humboldt Park announces details for annual free egg hunt
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) — The 19th annual Easter Egg Hunt at Humboldt Park will happen Saturday, April 13. The egg hunt is free, but families are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Bay View Community Center’s food pantry.
There will be a pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to noon inside the pavilion with pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausages and beverages. The cost is $6 per person. Kids age 4-11 are $4 with no charge for children 3 and under. Only cash is accepted.
The free Egg Hunt begins exactly at 10 a.m., rain, snow or shine on the west side of the pavilion. It is open to children 1-year-old through fifth grade. The Egg Hunt will include 5,000 candy-filled eggs scattered among five designated age zones: one for 1 and 2-year-olds, a second for 3 and 4-year-olds, a third for 5 and 6-year-olds, a fourth for 2nd and 3rd graders, and a zone for 4th and 5th graders. Each zone will contain one golden egg with a special prize inside.
The Easter Bunny will be available for free photos with children and families from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and following the Egg Hunt. There will be a free stroller check-in at the pavilion and egg recycling bins to place plastic eggs in after the egg hunt.
