Easter Egg Hunt and Shop Hop

Our Parks and Recreation Department has planned another great community event. The 36th annual Easter Egg Hunt is this Saturday at 10 a.m. at Pioneer Park (500 W. Center St.) The hunt will begin at 10 a.m. sharp. After the hunt, around 10:15 a.m., there will be more to do, including face painting, giant inflatable games, baby animals, crafts, balloons, and appearances by the Easter Bunny and Provo Parks and Recreation mascot Zippy the Chipmunk. The event is for children age 10 and younger, and is free. Parking is available south of the Provo City Center and Covey Center (100 S. 500 West). Here’s a map:
Afterwards, visit the businesses in downtown Provo, from 500 West to 100 East along Center Street, and Center Street to 300 North along University Avenue, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., for more Easter treats and prizes as part of the Downtown Business Alliance’s Shop Hop.

    I appreciate the hard work and effort of the Parks and Rec division and volunteers that helped with this event. Sad to say, this was my first and will definitely be my last time I attend this Easter Egg Hunt. I felt it was organized well, but was so saddened by the actions of a lot of the attendees 🙁 My poor little 3 yr old was so so excited to hopefully get a few eggs and had his eye on a chocolate bunny right in front of him. He waited patiently for 20 minutes and parents along with their children, some much older than the 3-5 age group took off before they said go, and my little guy looked back at me and said, “They didn’t say go yet?” I told him to go ahead and go for it, but by then everything was gone. My sweet little guy found a broken sugar stick and a sugar egg wrapped in plastic. I just wanted to cry as I saw a 10 yr old boy walk by with a huge overflowing basket of plastic eggs and my little guy didn’t even get one. The cute little guy looked at me and said, “I waited my turn, but I was too slow huh?” I told him he did a good job and we went to stand in line for a turn on a bouncehouse. He was so excited and we were first in line and he waited so patiently. Again, we were sadly passed up by kids who didn’t care about a formed line and we ended up just leaving because of rude and inconsiderate people. We didn’t go to hound a bunch of candy and suck the life out of the event, we went for the experience and to enjoy a festivity with our community. Such a disappointing morning full of greedy parents and kids that sucked the fun out of it for those of us respectful Provo citizens who were hoping for an exciting morning with our children. I’m so proud of my 3 yr old for showing respect for others and being a gentleman. He’s an amazing example of how everyone should have acted so that everyone who attended would have had fun too.
