The Rotary Club of Ashland presents the 59th annual Easter Egg Hunt starting at noon on Easter Sunday, April 16, in Lithia Park near the tennis courts. The festivities begin with the arrival of the Easter Bunny. The Easter Egg Hunt begins promptly at 1 p.m. with the sounding of the egg hunt siren.

The egg hunt will be over in just a few minutes. Kids in each of the five age groups will have their own section to search for eggs, candy and two golden eggs, which are good for a special prize. Age groups are: 2 years and under, 3-4 years, 5-6 years, 7-8 years and 9-10 years.

Nearly 300 dozen eggs are purchased through Willamette Egg Farm and will be dyed by Southern Oregon University’s Dining Hall staff.

The Easter Bunny will be greeting kids, passing out balloons and posing for photos throughout the event. Families are encouraged to be early so that children will not be disappointed.

The Rotary Club of Ashland No. 328 was founded in 1941 and has sponsored and hosted the annual Easter Egg Hunt in Lithia Park since 1957.
