Easter egg hunt is this Saturday at maritime park

by Bill Powell
Events Director
Deltaville Maritime Museum

It’s time for the 12th Annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park. Put on your favorite Easter bonnet, grab your Easter basket or bag, and bring the whole family out to the maritime park this Saturday, April 20, from 1-3 p.m. for all the hunt activities. The actual hunt itself starts promptly at 2 p.m. so be sure to get there early to take advantage of all the activities and enjoy the park. Did I mention to bring a basket? The festivities and attractions begin at 1 p.m.

The hunt is divided into three age groups. Ages 3 and under will scour the Children’s Garden, ages 4-6 will hunt in the Tea House/Waterfront Park area, and ages 7-10 will hunt along the nature trails. The cut-off age for egg hunting is 10.

Volunteers are still welcome and will need to sign in at the front table. Student volunteers are asked to include their school name and grade.

“We will have haywagen rides, the Easter Bunny, a photographer, and pony riding,” said Head Bunny Marie Wilding. Karen and Westley Mohach of Stable Hand are bringing the ponies.
