Colorful plastic eggs will be in high demand this weekend as families participate in two longstanding community events.
The 16th annual Saline Eggstravaganza Egg Hunt, presented by the Saline Area Chamber of Commerce, will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 31.
The trail starts at Busch’s Fresh Market (565 E. Michigan Ave, Saline) where participants pick up the different egg hunt trails that takes you through the various shopping areas in Saline. Collect treats, toys and eggs on every trail. Finish each trail at Mickey’s Dairy Twist (751 W Michigan Ave, Saline) to turn in completed trail sheets for a chance to win one of the large baskets filled with prizes and gift certificates! This is a free event.
Saline Recreation is hosting several events.
The Egg Scavenger Hunt takes place at 11:30 a.m. Bring a basket to collect eggs scattered throughout the woods behind the Rec Center. Children will be divided into the following age groups: 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-10. A few lucky eggs will have a prize sticker. All participants will receive a goody bag. This event will take place outside rain, shine or snow. Event starts promptly at 11:30 a.m. by the play structure so don’t be late! Early registration is $8 or $10 on the day of the event.
Many of those families will stick around for "Lunch with the Bunny" at noon at the Saline Rec Center. Mr. Bunny himself will be making the rounds as you enjoy a pizza lunch. Bring your camera to take pictures with the Bunny. Early registration is $8 or $10 on the day of the event. Those who sign up for the Egg Hunt, Lunch with the Bunny or Egg Dive receive free admission to hop along the Hippity Hop Trail, from noon to 1 p.m. Kids will receive treats from local businesses.
The final event at the Rec Center is the Egg Dive, which takes place at 1 p.m. Kids will jump into the pool and collect as many eggs as they can, because some special eggs will have prize stickers inside. Children will be divided into the following age groups: 6-8 and 9-12. All participants will receive a goody bag. Participants are welcome to stay and swim after the event. The cost is $8 or $10 on the day of the event.
