The Annual Easter Egg Hunt is sponsored by HyVee, 105.3 KFM, and many other local businesses. This free event for area youth will feature egg hunts divided up by age group, with over 10,000 candy-filled eggs, and a series of grand prizes, including Lakeside Water Park family memberships! The Easter egg hunt starts at 1:00 p.m., but families are encouraged to come early to have their photo taken with the Easter Bunny and enjoy the mobile playground, which will be set up from noon – 2:00 p.m. 

The event will take place outside at Lakeside Recreation Facility, located at 1033 S. Lake Storey Road. Parking is available across the street at 833 S. Lake Storey Road. HyVee will also offer a grilling station, selling hot dogs and chips. 

“We are very excited to host this annual event,” said Elizabeth Varner, Director of Parks and Recreation. “It’s always well attended, and a wonderful day of fun for area families.”

In addition to the traditional Easter Egg Hunt, Galesburg Parks and Recreation is also offering a Doggie Easter Hunt this year.
