Egg Dash is March 30

Staff report

The Paducah Parks Services Department's Annual Easter Egg Dash is a race for children to pick up as many eggs as they can after the whistle blows.

The free event is set for March 30 at the Noble Park baseball/softball fields. Registration begins at 5 p.m.

The children race with their age groups to pick up 15,000 candy-filled eggs that are spread across the ball fields. Bring an Easter basket or a sack.

Age groups for the Easter Egg Dash are 0-2 years, 3-5 years, 6-8 years, and 9-10 years. Age groups will dash in 15-minute increments beginning with the 0-2-year-olds at 5:45 p.m. and concluding with the 9-10-year-olds at 6:30 p.m.

Goody bags will be available for the first 500 children. Plus, there will be prize eggs hidden on each field. Children who find a prize egg should visit the registration desk for an additional prize.

Volunteers from the Paducah Young Professionals, a division of the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce, will help with the event.

For more information, contact recreation specialist Mallory Gentry at 270-444-8508 or mgentry@paducahky.gov.
