2) This event is intended for CHILDREN (12 and under). There will be a separate area for children 3 & under to hunt (in the small playground area). Please Dormont residents only.
3) Please clean up after yourselves and respect the park! *After the hunt, show your empty eggs at the pavilion and turn them in to be reused and you’ll be entered to win one of the prizes! Winners will be announced after the event (so there’s no need to wait) and prizes will be available for pickup at the Borough Building the week after the event.
4) Please do not arrive early as we need the area to be clear for set-up and hiding eggs.
Hoppy egg hunting!
