Town Easter Egg Hunt & “For Peeps Sake 5K”
March 31 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Easter Egg Hunt:
Join Carbondale Recreation for its Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Sopris Park. We need help finding the 6,000 eggs we will be hiding all over the park! The Hunt will begin at 10am with a shotgun start. Please arrive promptly because the hunt only lasts a few minutes. And be sure to bring your own basket to collect the eggs. Participants will be divided up according to age. Registration for the Easter Basket Raffle will begin at 9:30am, and winners will be drawn following the Hunt. For more information, contact Margaret Donnelley at 970-510-1280 or visit the website. Ages 1-8.
For Peep Sake Scavenger Hunt:
Are your kids too old for an Easter Egg Hunt? Are you a kid at heart and still love the joy of Easter Egg Hunts? Do you just like to have a good time? This event is for anyone looking for a fun and active holiday tradition and falls into any of the previous categories. We have two race options this year. The first is the Families/Kids/Not So Fast Division, and is for people who want to have fun, but may want to walk or run shorter distances (2.5K-5K). These teams will be provided a map of a specific area and search the mapped area for Peeps “hiding in plain sight.” The second race is the Competitive 10K Division. These teams will be given a plush Peep and they will travel with their Peep and solve clues to find Peeps all over town. All teams will have 2 hours to race around and collect as many Peeps’ points as possible. There are bonus points for all teams who come in costume, so get them ready!
Date: Saturday, March 31st
Time: 8:30am check in
Teams: 2-6 people
Cost: $30 per team
Pre-Registration Required: Deadline Monday, March 28th
