For over 25 years, each spring, right before Easter, the Foxboro Jaycees fill over 2500 (yes, two thousand and five hundred!) plastic eggs with candy and scatter them across Foxboro Common. In 2017 we will had nearly 4000 eggs.
(It’s not really a “hunt” because the thousands of eggs are everywhere so everyone gets a good bounty of goodies!)
No parents will be in the taped off area. We remind parents that if your child isn’t able to collect the eggs on their own, perhaps this isn’t the event for them.
On that morning, approximately 300 children race to collect as many eggs as they can. We have three hunts separated by three age groups (1-3 years), (4-5 years), and (6-7-8 years)
IMPORTANT: BE THERE BEFORE 10AM — The first hunt starts at EXACTLY 10:00!
The kids then have a meet and greet with the Easter bunny and get their picture taken. Feel free to bring your own camera if you like! BUNNY PICTURES: If you would like the Jaycees to take the picture of you child/children with the Easter Bunny, we provide a FREE digital picture placed on a password protect server — we’ll give parents the password that day!
THE ENTIRE EVENT INCLUDING THE PICTURES IS FREE!
