The Jamestown Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department will hold the 66th annual Easter egg hunt at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Allen Park.
Due to current weather conditions, the hunt will be located inside the Allen Park Ice Rink. One age group at a time will go into the arena to find eggs. The three age groups are children ages 9 to 12 years of age, children 5 to 8 years of age, and children 4 and under.
More than 3,000 eggs will be hidden in the hunt area, including two gold and two silver eggs that are sponsored through a donation in memoriam of Mark Hess. Thirty additional prize eggs will be added to the fun. The Easter Bunny will arrive by fire truck to kick off the event. The Jamestown Community College Student Ambassadors Program helped stuff the other 3,000 eggs with candy.

All children 12 years of age and under are invited to attend. For more information, contact the Jamestown Parks and Recreation Department at 483-7523.
