Menlo Park parents have two city-sponsored options for their kids to participate in springtime festivities on Saturday, May 26. Scheduled simultaneously, Menlo Park will host two Easter egg hunts, held at two parks across town, from 10 a.m. to noon.
They will take place at Burgess Park, located at 701 Laurel St., and at Kelly Park, located at 100 Terminal Ave.
Both events will be divided into age groups, with directions that no child take more than four eggs.
Kids 2 and under will start hunting at 10:20 a.m.; 3- to 4-year-olds are next at 10:40 a.m., followed by 5- to 6-year-olds at 11 a.m. and 7- to 8-year-olds at 11:20 a.m.
There will also be crafts, a jelly bean guessing contest and an Easter Bunny present for photos.
The Burgess Park event will feature a bounce house, opening at 10 a.m., and the Kelly Park event will have a magic show at 11:45 a.m.
Kids should bring their own basket or bag. Parents should watch young children; some eggs contain candies and small toys that may be a choking hazard, as noted on a flier describing the event.
The event is co-sponsored by the Menlo Park Firefighters Association and the Menlo Park Fire Protection District.
