The Easter Bunny is coming April 8

The annual City of St. Johns Easter Egg Hunt, sponsored by the St. Johns Lions Club with support from many local contributors, will be held on Saturday, April 8, 2023 – rain or shine – at the St. Johns City Park.

After a two-year hiatus due to Covid, face painting is back this year. There will be other fun activities for kids, and the Easter Bunny will be at the event for photo opportunities. These activities will take place in the pavilion beginning at 12:30 p.m.

The City Police siren will sound at 1:00 p.m. to start the “organized mayhem.” The area around the pavilion will be sectioned off by the following age groups: under 3 (with parent), 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, and 9-10. Kids under the age of 3 may also pick up eggs in the pavilion, if preferred. Only kids are allowed in the Egg Patch. No adults please except for under 3.

There is one egg in age groups 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, and 9-10 that has a special ticket inside to win an Easter Basket filled with goodies, so open your eggs while you are there to claim your prize. The baskets will be available for pick-up in the pavilion.

Please recycle your eggs at the event. There will be recycling containers around the Egg Patch and near the pavilion. A recycling container also will be available at the Lions Recycling Center located at 605 N. Swegles Street in St. Johns.

If you have any questions, call Lion Nancy at (989) 307-9872.
