Easter is a little over a week away and children of Cobb County homes are getting their baskets ready to hunt down the perfect egg. While parents assist, cheer from the sidelines and help count at the end, each egg found is a new treasure in a child’s eyes. Some eggs shine with glitter, others feature treats on the inside. Either way, an Easter egg hunt is a great opportunity to watch children enjoy the search and spend time with family and friends.
In addition to hunts at home, school or church, Cobb County children have several community opportunities to hunt for Easter eggs this year. 2013 Easter egg hunts include:
- Acworth Easter Egg Hunt: The Acworth Easter Egg Hunt takes a unique spin on a classic tradition with the Easter Bunny skydiving into the Acworth Sports Complex on Friday, March 22, at 8:00 p.m. Sponsored by the City of Acworth Parks and Recreation Department and Freedom Church, children up through 5th grade will have the opportunity to hunt 50,000 eggs filled with candy.
