Time for Main Street Easter Egg Hunt

Woodward Main Street is holding its 5th annual Easter Egg Hunt Saturday.

This your, there are two age groups and two locations. Children ages 6-10 will hunt at Centennial Park, 9th and Texas, starting at 9 a.m. At 10 a.m., infants to 5-year-olds will hunt at the Stine House, 10th and Kansas.

Janet Fitz, Main Street executive director, said organizers are planning on around 300 kids this year.

"Three volunteers came last week and stuffed eggs and goody sacks.  We have 1,100 eggs and between 60 and 65 goody sacks,” Fitz said. “The eggs are stuffed with candy and toys. Main Street does something different. We buy stuffed animals, games, and stuff and place among the eggs. Every kid should be able to go home with a sack of goodies. There will be 3 prize eggs, first, second, and third place. The prizes for these eggs are baskets full of all sorts of stuff."

Fitz said there are 3 to 5 volunteers for each group who hide the eggs.

"It takes us about an hour to hide the eggs and the kids about 10 minutes to find them." Fitz said .

If you would like to volunteer contact Fitz at her office 1102 Main St. or call  580-254-8521.
