Mason-Dixon Historical Park in Core, W.Va., will host an Easter egg hunt at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 12.
Participants will hunt for plastic eggs filled with candy, and may have their photo taken with the Easter Bunny. This event is open to anyone, and free for children of all ages.
Registration for the event is from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
During that time there will be games and contests, with prizes awarded to the winners. Games include a “Guess Cake,” “Guess Jar,” “Cake Walk” and “Egg Toss.”
The Egg Hunt begins at 3 p.m. and will be divided into four different age groups for children from one year to twelve years old. There will also be an Egg Hunt for people 13 and over.
Hot dogs, drinks and snacks prepared by the Heavenly Red Hatters group will be available for sale.
“Our event is unique in that we have an egg hunt for older children and adults. Even seniors enjoy participating,” said Justine McCoy, park superintendent. “Past egg hunts at the park have drawn 300 to 400 people who come from as far away as Pittsburgh and Wheeling.”
Mason-Dixon Historical Park features a marker placed by surveyors Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon in 1767, designating what later became the border between West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The park is directed and supported by the Monongalia County Commission.
“Mason-Dixon Park is a hidden gem,” McCoy said. “We would like to attract more visitors to the park, so we are planning other exciting programs and events in the coming months.”
