Two Easter Egg Hunts are set for this weekend with one at a local park, and one at a downtown church.

The Second Annual Carnes Park Easter Egg Hunt will be held from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, at Carnes Park. Food and refreshments will be provided.

All ages are welcome to the hunt and a limited number of free Easter baskets will be available. The eggs will be hidden throughout the park, and some will include cash in addition to candy.

Last year’s hunt was well attended and even had a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny himself who played and took pictures with the children. Children were instructed to find as many eggs as possible and to be on the look-out for “the golden egg.”

The event is co-sponsored by the E.B. Williams Youth Center and The Shine Shop. According to one of the event’s organizers, Eric Gunter, the main goal of the event is for children to be able to have a good, fun and safe time with other children in the community.

Also this weekend, First Baptist Church on Washington Street in downtown Camden will host an “Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Carnival” from 4-6 p.m. on Sunday, April 14, in the grassy lot in front of the church.

This event will feature games, bounce houses, an appearance by the Easter Bunny, an egg hunt, food, and more.
