PELHAM – Pelham residents are invited to participate in the city’s annual Easter egg hunt on April 4.

The hunt will start at 9 a.m. at Pelham City Park.

“It is a city-wide egg hunt,” Pelham Parks and Recreation Director Billy Crandall said in an email March 23. “There is usually around 200-300 people at the event.”

Crandall said the city has held an Easter egg hunt for 17 years and sees a “great turnout every year.”

The event is free to attend and will include 8,500 eggs.

“All the eggs are filled with either a toy or a piece of candy,” Crandall said.

The fields will be sectioned off for ages 0-5, 6-9 and 10 and above.

Participants need to bring their Easter baskets.

The Easter Bunny will also be present.
