The Noblesville Parks and Recreation Department and Hare Chevrolet are egg-cited to announce the return of the free Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 9 at Forest Park. The festivities will be held at Shelter 5 and begin at 10 a.m., with the egg hunt starting promptly at 11 a.m.

“After taking a pause on the event the last couple of years due to COVID-19, we are excited to host the Easter Egg Hunt again,” said Recreation Program Coordinator Erin Portman. “This also marks the first outdoor event of the year for the city’s Parks and Recreation Department and we always look forward to seeing families and children enjoying the egg hunt and taking photos with the Easter Bunny.”

Activities at Shelter 5 include bounce houses, a DJ, and vehicle tours from the Noblesville Fire Department and Noblesville Police Department. The Easter Bunny also will make a special appearance at the event.

The Egg Hunt includes three age groups for children 3-10 years old (3-4, 5-6 and 7-10). Children ages 2 and younger are invited to stop by the Parks and Recreation tent, where toddler-related activity bags will be handed out to the first 150 kids.

No registration is required to participate.

Prior to the event, the Noblesville Kiwanis Sunrisers will host a pancake breakfast in conjunction with the Easter Egg Hunt at the Forest Park Inn from 8 to 10:30 a.m. The menu will consist of pancakes, sausage, juice, coffee and milk. There is a $5 charge for the breakfast and all proceeds will go to a local charity.
