Biggest Easter Egg Hunt set for April 18
South Hilo Parks and Recreation Department workers — along with fellow county employees and a big contingent of community volunteers — are gearing up for the 21st-annual Biggest Easter Egg Hunt on Friday, April 18, at Wong Stadium in Hilo.
Organizers will hide 30,000 plastic eggs containing prizes for youngsters in four age brackets to find.
The event is presented in partnership with the Hilo Jaycees, Hilo High School Key Club, Waiakea High School Key Club, Hilo and Waiakea Intermediate Builders, Hawaii Police Department, Prosecutor’s Office, Hawaii Fire Department, East Hawaii Kiwanis, Circle K and Men of Pa‘a.

Youths younger than 3 may get a goodie bag after participating in an activity at the Easter craft station in the stadium. Goodie bags will be limited to the supply on hand. Only bags provided by event coordinators will be allowed at the hunt. Baskets and other bags will not be allowed.
