Hippity, Hoppity Easter’s on its way!
The Town of Frisco has it on good authority that the Easter Bunny will be making a special stop on Main Street for the Annual Frisco Easter Egg hunt. Children are invited to hunt for 5,000 candy and toy-stuffed eggs throughout the Frisco Historic Park and Town Hall. The Easter Bunny will visit with kids before and after the hunt on Main Street.
The Easter Egg hunt is recommended for children up to 8 years old and will take place snow or shine. The hunt will be divided into three new areas on Main Street between Madison and 2nd Avenue . Children ages under 3 years old will hunt in and around Town Hall. “The Easter Bunny wanted to expand the hunt for the little adventurers allowing for more family helpers to spread out and take lots of pictures” stated Nora Gilbertson, Events Manager. The hunt area for children 3-5 years will be set up on the gazebo lawn at the Frisco Historic Park. Children ages 6-8 will search out eggs on the upper lawn of the Historic Park.
Children 3 – 8 should line up on the sidewalk on the south side of Main Street (opposite the Historic Park) for a mass start at 12:00 pm (noon). The Schoolhouse bell will signal the start of the hunt. This event is free to all children. The Town of Frisco expects 300 participants and asks all parents to please limit the eggs your child keeps to 7 per child. A limited number of eggs will have special gifts to redeem at the Frisco/Copper Information Center located at 300 Main Street. Children who find eggs stuffed with gold coins should bring them to the Easter Bunny for a special sweet treat.
Main Street in Frisco will be closed to traffic from 11 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 31st for the Annual Easter Egg Hunt. The closure will be from Madisondown to 2nd Avenue. The Frisco Police Department will be closely monitoring the closure for the safety of the children who will be collecting eggs and encourages all motorist to plan alternate routes during the two hour long Easter Egg Hunt. Cars parked in the affected area onMain Street are asked to be extra cautious around the children at play. The hunt will start promptly at noon and will end when all the eggs are found.
