April 01, 2021
REGION — Easter egg hunts are back in some towns, though with different social distancing provisions and some extra rules.

Center Harbor and Meredith will be holding special egg hunts this weekend and the Moultonborough Public Library has already held their annual egg hunt.

Last year egg hunts and Easter parties were canceled due to the pandemic. This year some events are back on.

The Meredith Parks and Recreation Department will hold an Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 3 at the community center.

All participants must register with the department by April 1 and no registration will be available the day of the event.

Different age groups will get their own time slots: 10-10:15 a.m. for ages 1-2, 10:45-11 a.m. for ages 3-4, 11:30-11:45 a.m. for ages 5-6, and 12:15-12:30 p.m. for ages 7-9. Everyton is asked to arrive five minutes before their time slot.

The egg hunt will take place outside and will not have any special events inside the community center like in previous years. Participants are asked to leave as soon as their hunt is done. Masks will be required for everyone.

Kids can keep all the eggs and goodies they find in this year' hunt.

The Center Harbor Parks and Recreation Department will have a take home easter egg hunt where families can search for eggs in their own yards. On Saturday from 10 a.m.-noon, people can pick up treat bags and a bucket of eggs in front of town hall to take home. Participants are asked to wear a mask and socially distance.

The Moultonborough Public Library held their egg hunt on March 31 with four time slots: 5:30 p.m., 6 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 7 p.m. According to the library's Web site, the event got a great response and the first two slots filled up quickly.
