The children of Jamestown are going Easter egg hunts again on the Saturday before Easter.

Starting at 11 a.m. Saturday, the city’s annual Easter Egg Hunt returns after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic at Allen Park.

The age groups will be distributed, the 4 years and under in front of the large pavilion and the kitchen; 5-8 by the basketball court; and 9-12 by the small pavilion. There will be over 300 eggs and plenty of candy for everyone. The Easter Bunny and Whiffy the Tarp Skunk will make special appearances. The event is free and open to the public.

“They’ve been private enough” Stone said events for children like the Easter egg hunt have been canceled due to the pandemic.

The event is sponsored by the city; professional equipment; Allen Park Women’s Club; Jamestown Fire Department; AFSCME Local 418 — Employees of the Public Works and Parks Department; Jamestown Urban Renewal Agency; Administrative Association of the City of Jamestown; Jamestown Police Department; Jamestown Babe Ruth League; Jamestown Area Midget Football League; The Chautauqua County Child Advocacy Program; and Frewsburg Football Club.
