The Easter Bunny makes his 21st annual hop to Manchester University on Saturday, March 28, and all area children are invited.
Children ages 1 to 12 years will find lots to do at the free event beginning at 11:30 a.m. on the North Manchester campus.
The activities are hosted by MU student residents of East Hall.
In addition to the Egg Hunt, there will be face painting, chalk drawing, sack races and other field games, as well as photos with the Easter Bunny. To give little ones equal opportunity, activities are split into age categories: 1 to 6 and 7 to 12.
The Egg Hunt is at noon between East and Garver residence halls, off East Street. All children must register beforehand at the event and be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
“One of the best things about the caring community in East Hall is that we get to host great events for young children who live in the area,” said Letha L. Parrott, East Hall director. The hall is home to about 200 MU students, and its volunteers will fill 1,000 plastic eggs with treats for the Egg Hunt.
“We want to uphold traditions that encourage children to feel comfortable on the Manchester University campus and have great memories here,” Parrott said. “Our hope is that one day they will become MU Spartans who also care about providing good, clean, fun for the next generation.”
