PITTSBORO — Chatham County Parks and Recreation invites the community to step into spring with the EGGstreme Spring Fling.

This epic Easter Egg Hunt is back in person and will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 9, at Central Carolina Community College’s Main Campus located at 764 West St., Pittsboro.

Community members are invited to enjoy the many different activities that the EGGstreme Spring Fling has to offer, including balloon twisting, hula hoops, glitter tattoos, and multiple other community organizations hosting other Spring-themed activities, including the Maple View Mobile Ice Cream Truck.

Starting at 11 a.m., there will be field games including a sack race, water balloon toss, and egg and spoon relay. Participants will have a chance to win a prize during these games. The egg hunts will begin at 12:15 p.m. and will wrap up the event. The egg hunt will be teared into age groups: Under 4 years old, 5 years old to 8 years old, and 9 years old and older. Community members are encouraged to bring their own baskets for the egg hunt.

“Spring is here, and it’s been a while since we have been able to offer the traditional outdoor easter egg hunt,” says Chatham County Parks and Recreation Director Tracy Burnett. “We are so excited to announce The EGGstreme Spring Fling, and we can’t wait to lots of Chatham County families in person.”
