Main Street holding Easter egg hunt

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward's Main Street program will hold its third annual Easter egg hunt for children ranging from infants to 10 years old on Saturday.

Children will have a chance to search for various colored plastic eggs filed with treats, said Main Street Program Director Janet Fitz.

The egg hunt will consist of three age groups at three different times at three separate locations around Main Street. Infants to 3-year-olds will be at 10 a.m. at the Stine House, 10th and Texas; ages 4-6 will be at 11 a.m. in front of the Woodward County Courthouse and ages 7-10 will hunt eggs at noon at Centennial Park, 9th and Texas.

"There will be candy, money, and toys throughout the eggs. Everybody should go home with a prize," Fitz said.

Each age group will contain a grand prize egg which will result in the finder winning a basket of goodies which also consists of candy, toys and money.

"It’s a good way for Main Street that will promote kids coming out to Main Street instead of just adults," Fitz said. "We like to do things for kids too, so we hold a few events a year just for children. We want them to get used to Main Street and know it’s safe for them to come walk around and have fun."

The hunt stands to be quite the event, as Fitz said in the past they've had a little over 400 kids attend. Fitz said all parents need to do for their kids to participate is show up at the designated area at the proper time.

The Main Street Program will also be celebrating its second year to be in the Top Ten Main Street Programs in Oklahoma.

Fitz explained that the State Main Street holds awards every year, awarding points for economic restructuring, design restructuring, and organization.

"It's pretty neat out of 40 communities with Main Street Programs to be in the top 10, that's pretty good," said Fitz.

Fitz said the Main Street Board as well as city is always proud to keep Main Street going, letting its light shine and showing that it can be productive.
