Big Rapids Elks hosting annual Easter egg hunt this Saturday

The Mecosta County Fairgrounds will be packed this weekend as the annual Big Rapids Elks Easter egg hunt will be in full swing.

Over 16,000 eggs will be spread around the grounds for kids to hunt with candy, certificates, and other labeled prizes. Some certificates include free crazy bread coupons for Little Caesar’s Pizza, and free ice cream from the Milkshake Spot. Labeled prizes include giant easter baskets, donut holes from Bernie’s Place, and fudge from Patterson’s Flowers.

These eggs will be spread out for three different age groups to collect based on difficulty: 2–4-year-olds, 5–7-year-olds, and 8–10-year-olds.”

“Those 16,000 eggs will be picked up in about a minute in a half,” Elks President Josh Eling said. “It is amazing to watch. It is a really fun event.”

This free event will begin at 1 P.M. from the Fairgrounds on Saturday, Mar. 30. Participants also can arrive early to take photos with the Easter Bunny and Elroy the Elk.

“Please try to get there a little bit early. The event does fill up so you will want to have your spot when we begin.”

Sponsors for the event include Y-102 WYBR, 19 Mile Veterinary Hospital, Isabella Bank, Big Rapids Tire, Chuck and Meredy’s Auto Service, Karla Alley Real Estate, and Quinn’s Music.
