City of Chester 2017 Easter Egg Hunts


(CHESTER, PA) – The City of Chester’s Department of Parks and Recreation in conjunction with the Chester Inter-Greek Council, will host three (3) Easter Egg Hunt events on Saturday, April 15, 2017.


Children ages 12 and under are invited to participate.  Event organizers estimate more than 3,000 plastic eggs will be given out between the three locations.  Children participating in the hunt can expect to find eggs filled with candy and other surprises. Free photograph opportunities with the Easter Bunny will also be available.


Parents or guardians accompanying a child should plan to arrive to the event location at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time—as each event will begin promptly.


A special performance by the Xinos and Kudos Step Team will take place at Memorial Park shortly following the Easter Egg Hunt.
