Herndon Parks and Recreation celebrated their annual Aqua Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 24 at the Herndon Community Center. Children up to age 12 joined other children in their respective age groups and collected as many floating and sinking eggs as possible in the time allowed.
Children swam, dove and splashed for hundreds of plastic eggs dropped in the pool and placed the eggs into the provided mesh bags. When the whistle blew, children exchanged their eggs for a gift bag filled with treats and fun.
On Saturday, March 31, 2018, Herndon Parks and Recreation will be tossing out the plastic eggs again, but this time on dry land for the Annual Easter Egg Hunt held at 777 Lynn Street, behind the Herndon Municipal Center.
Herndon Parks and Recreation Department reminds children to bring their parents, cameras, baskets and egg-hunting shoes for a fun-filled morning.
Games, arts and crafts, and music will begin at 9:45 a.m., along with a photo opportunity with the Easter Bunny. Pre-registration is $9 through Friday, March 30, or $10 onsite the day of the event (cash or check only.)”
Children are only permitted to participate in their respective age group. There are other activities scheduled throughout the morning in addition to the egg hunt, such as a petting zoo, tattoo shack and coloring of a mural. Parking for the event is free and available at various designated areas in downtown Herndon.
