This year, the egg hunt is being sponsored by the Main Street Association (MSA) and the Town of East Greenwich, and it promises to be just as fun as it’s always been.

Michelle Clark, MSA board member and co-founder of the annual Turkey Trot talks to us about what we can expect this Saturday.

What time does the egg hunt start?
The egg hunt starts promptly at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 4, at Eldredge Field in East Greenwich.

What ages is the egg hunt appropriate for?
The egg hunt is great for the entire family. This is the first year that we’re including older children, because we really want to make this a family affair. There will be three age groups, 0-3; 4-7; and 8-12.

No! This is a free community event. Dave’s Market has generously donated juice boxes for the kids and Dunkin’ Donuts will provide coffee for the adults.

What’s in the eggs?
The eggs are filled with candy along with a few surprises such as gift certificates for ice cream! In each age group, there is one special egg that will win a prize from Hasbro.

What if it rains or even snows?
The event will go on – regardless of April showers or even snow!

What should we bring?
Kids should bring a basket or a bag to collect the eggs.
