St. Charles County - More than 4,000 candy-filled eggs will be hidden throughout the Youth Activity Park's 25-acre facility at 7801 Highway N in Dardenne Prairie during the eighth annual St. Charles County Parks Easter Egg Hunt, Saturday, March 23.  For just $5 per child, registrants will be able to participate in the outside hunt as well as enjoy a variety of egg-themed games inside the park complex.  The Easter Bunny will also be visiting with children and available for photos throughout the event. 

There will be three separate hunts going on during the festivities.  Hunts for toddlers ages 3 and under begin at 10 a.m.; children ages 4 – 6 at 10:30 a.m.; and kids ages 7 – 12 at 11 a.m.  There are nearly 1,400 eggs to hunt for in each age group.  In addition, one individual in each age group will have a chance to win a basket filled with toys and goodies if they find the "prize egg" with a message inside. 

Advanced registration is encouraged as each hunt is limited to 100 participants.  To register your child today, contact the Youth Activity Park at 636.561.4964.
