The egg hunt, hosted by Southfield Wellness Community and the City of Webster City, is scheduled to be West Twin Park with two hunts planned based on the age of children. The first, for children ages 1 to 4, will be held at 10 a.m., with the second hunt set to begin at 10:20 a.m. Ten lucky eggs will be hidden around the grounds. The child who finds one of those eggs will receive a special prize.

Youngsters will also have a chance to meet the Easter Bunny. The meet and greet will be held in Webster City Fire Station, just across the street from West Twin Park.There will be photo opportunities with the bunny from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Parents, grandparents and caregivers are encouraged to bring cameras to snap a few keepsake photos of the children with the Easter Bunny.

Organizers said there will also be refreshments. Cookies and lemonade will be provided by Southfield Wellness Community.

There is no cost to attend the Easter Egg Hunt. In the event that there is inclement weather Saturday morning, the egg hunt and bunny meet and greet will be moved to Fuller Hall.
