The Insiders: How many eggs can you fit in your basket?

With the Easter Bunny’s arrival less than 24 hours away, we can hardly contain our excitement. We’re talking setting up our own Easter egg hunts kind of excited. (Which FYI, doesn’t work because you already know where the eggs are.)

But for all the kids out there, the Concord Parks & Rec department has you covered. So there’s no need to hide your own eggs in the backyard, the recreation department staff and volunteers will do all the hiding for you – just not in your backyard.

Rather, White, Rolfe, Keach and Merrill parks will be the grassy areas transformed into the plastic egg centers of the universe for the annual egg hunts this morning, beginning at 10:30 a.m. Each park will have more than 2,000 eggs hidden and the fun goes until all the eggs are found. The hunts, open to children in fourth grade and younger, will also have three strategically hidden golden eggs that will lead to a sweet new Easter basket. Challenge accepted.

In addition, Kimball-Jenkins will host its 5th annual Eggstravaganza for kids ages 1 to 11. There will be face painting and photos with the Easter Bunny, beginning at 9 a.m., with the egg hunt starting at 10 a.m. Don’t forget to bring your own basket.
