The Council Bluffs Parks & Recreation Department is partnering with the Robert's Park Neighborhood Association to host our annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 8, 2017. The Hunt, which is free to children ages one to 10, will start at 10 a.m. at Roberts Park (1000 N. 25th St). The children will be divided into three age groups.

In addition to eggs, the Council Bluffs Fire Department and Police Departments will bring equipment to show the children, along with stickers and other treats. Face Painting by Spunky will be on hand to paint whiskers on all the kids. No registration is necessary. The Hunt will begin promptly at 10 a.m., rain or shine, so all participants are encouraged to arrive early. Parking is free.
