With COVID-19 restrictions still in place, we are unable to hold our traditional Easter Egg Hunt at Wasserman Park this year. Instead, we are offering free Easter Egg Hunt Kits that you can pickup; take home, and hold your own Easter Egg Hunts from the comfort and safety of your own home.
Each kit will include at least 20 Easter Eggs with candy or toys in them. The Parks & Recreation Department will also be handing out an Easter Basket Making Craft.
On Saturday, March 27th, you will come to Merrimack Town Hall and pickup your Easter Egg Hunt Kit along with an Easter Basket craft from the Easter Bunny who will be available for car selfies. Participants will drive in and your kit will be handed to you thru your car window so that you will not need to get out of the car.
Hidden inside 20 random Easter Eggs (of the 10,000 Easter eggs we are giving out); we will also be awarding special prize tickets which are valid for a $10 Amazon Gift Card. Lucky winners will need to submit a photo of their winning prize slip.
WE WANT TO STRESS THAT EACH CHILD IN THE HOUSEHOLD MUST BE REGISTERED IN ADVANCE IN ORDER TO RECEIVE AN EASTER EGG HUNT KIT (1 BAG PER REGISTRATION). If you have two children in the household but only register one child, you will only receive 1 bag; as supplies are limited.
In addition to our Easter Egg Hunt Kits from the Parks & Recreation Department, the Merrimack Public Library will be giving out an Easter-themed take home craft kits for each family, with additional instructions on how to turn their empty Easter eggs into musical instruments after the egg hunt.
Merrimack Friends & Families will also have Easter related baked goods for sale during pickup. Items for sale will include: brownies, cookies, cupcake and rice krispy treats. Funds raised from the sale of these baked goods benefit Merrimack Friends & Families charitable causes, so we hope you will consider supporting them.
This event is co-sponsored by the Merrimack Parks & Recreation Department and Merrimack Friends & Families.
Pickup will be held at Merrimack Town Hall (6 Baboosic Lake Road) between 10:00 am - 12:00 pm on Saturday, March 27th, 2021.
This is a free event, but advanced registration is required. Only those who register in advance will receive an Easter Kit. Each child must be registered.
