Bay County will host a free Easter Egg Hunt at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 8 at H.G. Harder's Park. Two egg-hunting areas will be cordoned off, one for children 5 to 9 years old and a separate toddler section.

The Easter Bunny and Mrs. Easter Bunny will make a special appearance at 1 p.m. to pose for photographs, so parents should be certain to pack a camera. Participants will hunt some 7,000 hidden eggs, with special prizes for the children who find a gold or silver egg.

H.G. Harder's Park is located at 8110 John Pitts Rd., Panama City. To volunteer at the event or for more information, please call Janie Lucas at 784-4065.
