The Easter Bunny is expected to hop on over also.
Roy Logan of the
park district says the event draws over 600 kids looking for prizes
and sweet treats stuffed in plastic Easter eggs. The event has been
ongoing for over 20 years.
Ten thousand eggs donated by Symphony of Lincoln and the Lincoln
Kiwanis have been filled with all sorts of great treats by
Logan-Mason Rehab clients. They have been filling the brightly
colored eggs for several weeks to get ready for the big day.
Saturday morning the eggs will be distributed on the driving
range at the park district in lanes that are age-specific. Candy
fills many of the eggs, but some special eggs have prize coupons in
them that can be redeemed at the golf shack. The toys, which are
supplied by Symphony of Lincoln, are age-appropriate.

again next year.
