Children participating in the Fun Run Egg Hunt will be divided into two age categories − age 6 and under and ages 7 to 11 –and then run and hunt for colorful plastic eggs filled with candy, toys and coupons hidden along the course. One lucky child will go home with the “Golden Egg” which will have a special surprise inside.
