Gates open at 9:30 a.m. for the annual Friends of Holbrook-Palmer Park Easter Egg Hunt at the park, 150 Watkins Avenue, on Saturday, March 26. The hunt starts at 10:15 a.m.
Cost is at $10 per person at the gate (cash only). Children 12 months or younger are free. Profits from the annual event go towards the preservation and beautification of Holbrook-Palmer Park. In 2015, more than 900 people participated.
Children under 10 will hunt for thousands of treat-filled eggs, including three "Golden Eggs" that bring special prizes. There is a limit of 12 eggs per child and Easter baskets are not provided.
There will be performances by Gerald the Magician, face painting and balloons as well as an opportunity for participants to take their own photos with the Easter Bunny. Local firefighters and Atherton police officers, plus the mayor of Atherton, will be on hand.
Refreshments include mini cupcakes, frozen yogurt, coffee and bagels.
Walking or carpooling is suggested as limited parking is available.
