The Dell Rapids City Park was filled with hundreds of kids for the annual Dell Rapids Chamber of Commerce Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 8th. The event was again broken into three different age groups: three-years-old and under, ages four to six, and seven-years-old and older. The eggs were hidden in three different areas of the city park for the kids to find.
The Easter Egg hunt started at 10:30 a.m., but the Easter Bunny made a visit to the park at 10:00 to take pictures with all of the kids.
The Dell Rapids Chamber of Commerce held their annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 19th, at the Dell Rapids Elementary School. This year’s event included new features. From 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m., Chris’s Cakes served a pancake and sausage breakfast in the elementary school commons area. The Easter Egg Hunt then began at 10:30 a.m. with three different age groups: 3-years-old and under, ages four to six, and 7-years-old and older. The eggs were hidden in three different areas of the elementary school grounds outside.
Along with the breakfast, the Easter Bunny also returned to the Chamber Easter Egg Hunt after being absent the past few years. Children were able to meet the Easter Bunny and take pictures throughout the morning.
“We were very happy with the number of children that came out to the Easter Egg Hunt this year despite it being a little chilly outside. We were also excited with the addition of the breakfast and Easter Bunny this year. We would like to thank the Dell Rapids Elementary School for allowing us to hold the event here. It was a wonderful place to have it,” said chamber treasurer Amber Larson.
Each of the age groups had a “Golden Egg” winner. The Golden Egg was exchanged for a prize package including several prizes from local businesses donated by the Dell Rapids Chamber of Commerce.
The annual Dell Rapids Chamber of Commerce Easter Egg Hunt will be Saturday (weather permitting). This event, with hundreds of people attending each year, is a festive event organized by the Chamber and continues to be a highlight for this holiday. The weather is calling for temps in the mid-to-upper 50’s even though the early morning hunt may be closer to 50-degrees. And the west/northwest winds may be gusting up to near 25 mph. People are encouraged to be at the Dell Rapids City Park Band Shelter about 30-minutes early so when the clock strikes 10:00 am the hunt can begin.
