Easter Egg Hunt

2023 Easter Egg Hunt  |  Saturday, April 1  | Joyner Park Community Center

Saturday’s weather forecast is forcing the Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department to move its Easter Egg Hunt inside the Joyner Park Community Center (JPCC), 701 Harris Road. The free event usually takes place throughout Joyner Park, but the threat of high winds and rain is driving the event indoors.

Presented by Bumgarner & Martin Orthodontics and Skylift Garage Doors, Saturday’s indoor Easter Egg Hunt will include a first-of-its-kind pre-party featuring inflatables, a DJ, balloon artists, a visit from the Easter Bunny, and more. Doors open at 10 a.m. with all the pre-party festivities taking place throughout the spacious JPCC gymnasium.  

Beginning at 11 a.m., organizers will give away over 15,000 eggs containing prizes and candy at various stations throughout the JPCC gymnasium.

The Egg-ceptional Egg Hunt (for children with disabilities) will take place at 11:45 a.m. upstairs in the JPCC Walker Room.

Children should bring their own baskets or bags. No registration is required, and all the festivities are free.


Sensory Sensitivities

Individuals with sensory sensitivities are invited to check out sensory support items, including noise canceling headphones, at the JPCC front desk. Anyone who checks out one or more of these items will be required to provide a photo ID which will be returned upon checking the items back in.
