The City of St. John's Annual Children's Easter Egg Hunt will be held on Saturday, March 12, 2016. The hunt will begin at 11:00 am SHARP. The field is divided into age groups and each age group will "hunt" at different times (starting with the youngest first) to allow for those with children in different age groups to see each hunt.
The hunt will again be held at the Marvin Elementary School, 3510 Woodson Road (northeast corner of St. Charles Rock Road & Woodson Road). Please use the Early Childhood Daycare Parking Lot at Woodson Road & North Avenue. This eliminates the need to walk up and down the hill off Marvin School's parking lot. The hunt is for residents children & grandchildren, walking age up to and including 9 years of age. Tickets are required but are free of charge and can be obtained from the City Hall Monday thru Friday, 8 am - 5 pm. Tickets will be available February 1st. Proof of residency is required in order to pick up tickets. The last day for picking up tickets is 5 pm, Friday, March 11th.
IN CASE OF RAIN OUT
Rain Outs will be posted on the City's website and the digital reader board at the Municipal Center.
However, if you go by the field after 9 am on March 12th and nothing is set up and no workers are there setting anything up, then it will be a rain out for that date and the hunt will be held the following weekend; March 19th same time, same place.
IF the March 19th hunt is a rain out, the hunt will be moved indoors to the Municipal Center that same day. Again, if you go to the field after 9 am and nothing is set up and no workers are there setting anything up, then you'll know it's been moved up to the St. John Municipal Center, "C" Level for 11 am.
Unfortunately when it is moved to the Municipal Center, there is no way we can conduct a "hunt". So what will happen is boxes of eggs for each age group will be in the cafeteria and the kids will be able to go to their respective age group and pick up a group of eggs out of the boxes. A set number will have to be set so that there is enough for each child that comes up. That will be based mainly on the turn out at the 11 am opening time.
