On Sat., March 17, 10 a.m., the City of Hartsville and Coker College will host the Community Easter Eggstravaganza at Coker College’s Davidson Hall lawn. Featuring more than 12,000 eggs stuffed with candy and toys, Hartsville youth ages 12 and under are invited to participate in three separate egg hunts at different times divided by age group. The first round will be for children ages 4 and under, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The second round will feature more challenging hiding spots for children ages 5 to 8, starting at 11 a.m. The third and last round will be for children ages 9 and up, starting at 11:30 a.m. Children are asked to bring their own baskets, but a limited number of collection bags for eggs will be available at the event for those in need.

Families can also enjoy food vendors, music, story time by Burry Bookstore, face painting, and other kid-friendly activities from Girls University and other community participants. Photo opportunities will be available with special appearances by Coker College’s Striker the Cobra and the Easter Bunny.

“We are delighted to once again host the Eggstravaganza on our campus,” says Coker College President, Dr. Wyatt, “We are thankful for our relationship with the City of Hartsville and hope everyone will turn out to enjoy a fun day at Coker.”
