Woodward, Okla. — The Woodward Moose and Elks Lodges will be hosting their annual Easter Egg Hunt Sunday (March 31) at Crystal Beach Park.

Sine 2008 the groups have combined efforts to host an egg hunt for children ages 3 to 12.

Governor of the Moose Lodge Mickey Thomas explained that for years the groups each used to host their own hunts, but in 2008 decided to combine efforts out of convenience for people attending.

The hunt is set up according to age groups:  0 to 3 year olds, 4 to 6 year olds, 7 to 9 year olds, and 10 to 12 year olds. Eggs stuffed with candy and small prizes will be scattered about the areas and children set loose to gather them up.

The event will also consist of a best dressed competition for the four age groups. Thomas explained that best dressed could be someone dressed in their Easter Sunday best or someone dressed up as a bunny or anything in between as long as theirs an Easter theme.

The Moose Lodge's own Tommy the Moose will also be making an appearance at the event and kids will have an opportunity to get their picture taken with Tommy.

The hunt will begin at 1 p.m.


Youngsters will also be able to hunt for Easter Eggs Wednesday (March 27) as Main Street will hold the events that were rained out on Saturday.

Infant to 3-year-olds will be at the Stine House at 10th and Kansas, 4 to 6 year olds will hunt in front of the Woodward County Courthouse and ages 7 to 10 will hunt at Centennial Park, 9th and Texas. All 3 hunts will start at 6 p.m.
