Easter Egg Hunt Saturday

For the 30th time, an annual Easter tradition takes place this weekend in Stephens County.

The 30th annual Stephens County Easter Egg Hunt takes place Saturday morning at the Stephens County Recreation Department on Rose Lane in Toccoa.

Stephens County Recreation Department Program Director Cheryl Stinnett said that the hunt begins at 11 a.m. at the Rose Lane complex’s ball fields, weather permitting.

“We have three age groups, ages 3 and under, ages 4 through 6, and 7 through 9,” said Stinnett. “They will need to bring their easter basket to collect their eggs.”

Stinnett encouraged people to arrive early, preferably by 10:30 a.m., as the hunt will start promptly at 11 a.m.

In case of inclement weather, it will be moved inside to the Stephens County Senior Center, next to the Recreation Department.

Also, AM 630 WNEG’s Ken Brady will broadcast live from the hunt Saturday morning.
