Bay Co. Easter Egg Hunt

H.G. Harder’s Park is located at 8110 John Pitts Rd., Panama City.
Bay County will host a free Easter Egg Hunt from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 28 at H.G. Harder’s Park. Two egg hunting areas will be cordoned off, one for children 5 to 9 years old and a separate toddler section.

The Easter Bunny will make a special appearance at 1 p.m. to pose for photographs, so parents should be certain to pack a camera. Egg hunting begins at 1:30 p.m., with prizes for the child who finds a golden egg in each age group.

The Bay County Pet Adoption Trolley will be on site with animals available for petting and adoption. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
