Eager kids of all ages won’t have to wait much longer to enjoy THPRD’s annual spring egg hunts – they arrive early this year!
Traditionally, these popular family events are for younger hunters. THPRD still has the same fun activities planned for the little ones, but this year’s schedule also includes the debut of a competitive “Extreme Egg Hunt” for ages 13-17.
Preregistration is recommended at all events because space is limited. Residents are encouraged to hop online to secure a spot, or call the host center.
No registration or admission charge is required for the Artisan Bazaar at Cedar Hills Recreation Center on Sat., March 26, 9 am - 1 pm. Get in the spirit of the season by shopping from a wide range of vendors selling baskets, crafts, baked goods and more.
For more information about these events, spring classes, or upcoming spring break camps (March 21-25), visit thprd.org.
