Overview Each year the department organizes and conducts an Easter egg hunt for children in the Saginaw area. This event has been held by the Fire Department for more than 20 years and it seems that more and more children participate each year. More than 700 children have participated every year for the last 3 years.
The event is usually held on Saturday of the weekend preceding Easter weekend with weather permitting. The location is the southern end of Willow Creek Park between West McLeroy Boulevard and Longhorn Road.
Date / Time:
April 8, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.
Age Divisions & Prizes
The hunt is divided into 3 age groups: 0-3 years old, 4-6 years old, and 7-10 years old. All the children line up with tremendous anticipation in the 3 large predefined areas and await the starting air horn signal. Candy eggs along with special prize eggs are eagerly and quickly gathered. Releasing 700-plus excited children at once is truly a sight to see. If a participant is lucky enough to find 1 of the prize eggs, it is redeemable for an age-appropriate gift at the prize tables. The Easter bunny also makes an annual appearance to hand out candy and pose for photos.
