The Trinity Park Neighborhood Association would like to welcome families with young children to join us for the Annual Spring Egg Hunt, on Saturday, March 31st. The Hunt will take place at the Gazebo on Duke East Campus located near the intersection of Campus Drive and West Main Street. Please plan to arrive by 9:45AM for instructions before the hunt.
The Hunt will begin promptly at 10:15 am, and thousands of eggs will be waiting to be collected! So grab your basket or bucket and come on out and hunt for some eggs! There will also be many eggs this year containing golden tickets that can be redeemed for special prizes! Families from neighborhoods surrounding Duke campus, as well as Duke employees and their family members, are invited to participate in the springtime tradition.
10:15 am: Hunt begins for 0-4 year olds
10:17 am: Hunt begins for 5-10 year olds
And hopefully, the wonderful sisters from Alpha Phi sorority will again partner with TPNA and serve as event volunteers and run a raffle, in which families can buy tickets for $1 apiece to potentially win some great prizes. The money generated from the raffle will be donated to Duke Children’s Hospital. We will also have a visit by the Easter Bunny to entertain the kids.
The egg hunt, which will involve about 2,500 “hidden” eggs, will be divided into two age groups: 3 years old and under, and 4 to 9 years old. Children are encouraged to bring baskets to carry their eggs, which will be filled with candy and small trinkets such as erasers and toys. Children who find “golden eggs” will be able to swap them for a larger prize.
All children are welcome to participate in the hunt! And younger and older children will have separate areas to hunt in for their eggs. After gathering eggs, we ask that you empty the contents of your eggs into your baskets and be sure to return the plastic eggs to the bins near the Gazebo so we can re-use another year. We look forward to another fun filled morning of egg hunting and festivities!
