This past weekend, as the first days of spring arrived, and so did the Easter Bunny! The annual City of Waynesboro Easter Egg Hunt was held at Nana’s Playground in the City Park on Saturday, April 9. Lots of energized kids were on hand to search for the oodles of eggs hidden in different locations around the park. Many smiles were seen as the Easter Bunny greeted those anxiously waiting for a sneak and a sweet treat. This free community event attracted the young and old and was sponsored by the City of Waynesboro and hosted by the Downtown Waynesboro Committee.
The Easter Bunny arrived at 10:00 a.m. and immediately started greeting the attendees along with posing for photos. The whistle blew at 10:30 a.m. sharp for the hunt to begin. Approximately 100 kids eagerly began to run about the grassy areas searching for the hidden prizes. The enthusiastic hunters were divided into three age groups and separated into different locations of the park to look for the eggs. A drawing for a goody-filled Easter basket was the prize for each age group. The Downtown Waynesboro Committee is a non-profit program of Tennessee Main Street. The Waynesboro charter is sponsored by the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce and is comprised of several local citizen-volunteers whose mission is to help revitalize, enhance, and promote Downtown Waynesboro as the best place to visit, work, shop, play and live through community partnerships. They meet the third Thursday of each month to to plan and organize new and exciting free events for the community to enjoy. Several free community events are currently in the works for this year. Anyone interested in getting involved in the community is welcome attend.
The Downtown Waynesboro Committee truly appreciates all of the patrons who attended the Easter Egg Hunt, making it such a success! We want to recognize the city commissioners, mayor, manager, and employees for their support and help with this event!
