It’s that time of year when eggs are painted instead of boiled or even fried, and hidden to the delight of children everywhere. It’s no different in Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains either. Come celebrate Easter in the Smokies with the town’s annual Easter Egg Hunt.
Sponsored by the Gatlinburg Community Police Programs, this Easter Egg Hunt is for children between the ages of 1 and 12. The hunt will take place on Saturday March 30 at Mynatt Park on Airport Road at noon. The Easter Egg Hunt starts at 1 pm. Not only will it be loads of fun, but kids participating in the Easter Egg Hunt get to compete for prizes as well.
For those with an empty stomach when they get there, hotdogs and other refreshments will be served. One more thing, don’t forget to bring your Easter basket!
Other events occurring in the area over the Easter holiday weekend include an appearance of the Easter Bunny at The Christmas Place in Pigeon Forge, the Pigeon Forge Easter Egg Hunt, and the Easter Sunrise Service at Ober Gatlinburg.
