Northside’s Easter Eggstravaganza is a Cherokee County tradition and this year’s event, once again, will include many exciting activities and fun for all ages such as a petting zoo, moon walks, carnival games, face painters, arts & crafts, spin art, sand art, food, music and much more. New this year will be a designated play area for children from ages 0 to 3 and special needs. Don’t forget to bring your Easter basket and join us for one of the egg hunts. This year, there will be four egg hunts:
• 1:30 p.m. – for children, age 0 to 3 years old, and for those who have special needs and require assistance
• 1:45 p.m. – for children, ages 4 to 6
• 2 p.m. – for children, ages 7 to 9
• 2:15 p.m. – for children, ages 10 years and up
Admission to the Easter Eggstravaganza, food and activities are free; however photos with the Easter Bunny are $5 for two photos, while souvenir t-shirts will be available for $10 each. All proceeds benefit the Special Care Nursery at Northside Hospital-Cherokee.
