Grab your flashlight, and mark your calendar. The City of Joplin is hosting a kids Easter egg hunt in the dark next Saturday, April 13th. The hunt is for kids between and 3-10 at the Gene Bassman Softball Complex at the Joplin Athletic Complex.
Over 10,000 eggs will be scattered on four softball fields, with different ages hunting on different fields. Your kiddos will need to bring a flashlight and a basket to collect their eggs. It costs just $3 per child if you register before April 10th. Registration is $5 after the deadline.
Check-in will begin at 7:45pm, with the first hunt beginning at 8:30pm.
Kids must be 3 years of age or older to participate for liability reasons. Parents may accompany their 3 and 4 year olds during the hunt, but are discouraged from picking up the eggs. For older ages, parents need to stay on the sidelines to keep the hunt fair and enjoyable to all.
