Easter egg hunt Saturday



Baker City’s annual Easter egg hunt is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 19 at Geiser-Pollman Park.

The event is for children ages 3 through 11.

Children should start lining up at 9:45 a.m. in the designated age group areas in the park. The police siren will sound at 10 a.m.

Filled plastic eggs, toys and candy will be placed in areas separated by ropes. No adults are allowed inside the hunt areas.

Hunt areas are divided by age groups:

• Age 3: Madison Street entrance, south side of park

• Ages 4-5: Campbell Street entrance, east lawn

•Ages 6-8: Madison Street entrance behind playground

• Ages 9-11: Campbell Street entrance, across from museum to north of the gazebo

There will be a limited number of pre-made Easter goddie bags for the toddlers in the under three age group, who are too small to go into a hunt area without the aid of an older person. Toddlers with parents may claim one of these bags at the Lions Shelter in the park. Toddlers’ hands will be stamped when they receive a bag, and parents can sign up for grand prize bunny drawing for their child. 

This change has been made for the safety of toddlers. Parents may take their filled baskets and go to the northeast lawn area to let their little ones play “hunt “ with their eggs.

Be sure to dress children warmly, bring cameras and a basket or sack to gather treasures. Pictures may be taken of your children with the Big Bunny before the hunt. Look inside of eggs prior to leaving, as some will have prize winning slips directing you to go to the Bunnymobile to collect a prize.

The event is organized by the Baker City Herald and funded by donations from local community members. Soroptimist International of Baker County is 501(c)3 partner of event.

Volunteer labor for the event is donated by Baker High School Leadership group, Baker Parole and Probation Department, Baker County Juvenile Department and Soroptimist International of Baker County.

Donation checks to the event may be made out to SIBC/Easter egg hunt and delivered to the Baker City Herald at 1915 First St. or mailed to Easter Egg Hunt, P.O. Box 807, Baker City, OR 97814. Annual cost breakdown: $1,500 for stuffed eggs, $500 for wrapped candy, $,1000 for assorted toys, baskets and cash prizes in eggs.
