Easter Egg hunts are everywhere in Verde Valley

Traditional kids’ event still very much alive

Kids love finding them.

Adults love hiding them.

The annual Easter Egg hunt is a tradition the entire family enjoys. This year, five communities in the Verde Valley will once again continue this great tradition.

Cottonwood

The Ledbetter Law Firm came to the rescue this year to help the City of Cottonwood Parks and Recreation Department hold an Easter Egg Hunt, a local tradition that goes back more than 17 years.

The hunt will be April 11 at Riverfront Park. It begins at 10 a.m. with separate hunts for age brackets for kids from one month to eight years.

Camp Verde

This traditional Annual Easter Egg hunt will take place April 11 at the Camp Verde Community Center. It begins at 9 a.m. and will end by noon. Kids between 2 and 10 are invited.

Cornville

The Cornville Community Association has more than 4,500 eggs to be hidden and found at Windmill Park. The fun begins at 10:15 a.m. April 11, and is held for Cornville children only.

Sedona

In Sedona the first-ever community Easter Egg hunt is much more than an egg hunt, it is being called a Celebration of Spring. Put on by the Sedona Parks and Recreation Department, the event will be held April 11 at Posse Grounds Park from 9 a.m. to noon. Admission is free. The egg hunt will begin at 10 a.m. for children 7 years and younger. Children will be divided into age groups, and there are 1,000 eggs to be found. Please bring your own baskets.

In addition to the egg hunt, the Celebration of Spring will feature a petting zoo, inflatable jolly jump, obstacle course and slide. Kids can have their faces painted and watch balloons turn magically into animals. For $1, kids can have their picture taken with the Easter Bunny.

The Beaver Creek Kiwanis Easter Egg hunt will be held April 11 in Sycamore Park, next to the bridge in Lake Montezuma. Registration begins at 9:15 a.m. and the hunt starts at 10. Children 12 and under are welcome to participate. Kids will be divided into four age groups.
