The Erickson Center for the Arts (ECA) in Curtis will be hosting their Community Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 8. Families are encouraged to arrive at 12:30 p.m. to meet in the upper level of the ECA building for registration. The egg hunt is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. The Easter Bunny will also be stopping by for the children to meet and get their pictures taken with.

This is the third egg hunt hosted at the Erickson Center. Their first year was in 2021 when members of the ECA learned that the usual organizers of the egg hunt were no longer able to host the event. It was because of the generous contributions from area businesses and individuals, not to mention the many volunteers, that their first event was such a success.

About 150 children participated in the hunt last year. In anticipation of a similarly large turnout, this year’s egg hunt will be structured a little differently. Families are asked to all meet in the upper level of the Erickson Center building starting at 12:30. There, parents will need to register children who are participating to provide an accurate head count for prizes. Registration will occur from 12:30 to 12:50. After each family registers their children, there will be a craft that families can work on while waiting for the egg hunt to begin at 1 p.m. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

The egg hunt will be split into age groups: 0-3, 4-7, and 8-10. Each group will take turns hunting this year. The first group to hunt will be the children aged 0-3. After all egg hunts are completed, families will be able to meet back in the upper level of the building for prizes to be handed out. There will be prizes for all children who participate.

Bring the family out for some fun this weekend! For more information or questions, please contact the ECA office at 906-586-9974.
