Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for April 19

ARLINGTON — Arlington’s third annual Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt will fill the Haller Middle School stadium with thousands of plastic eggs on the evening of Saturday, April 19.

The gates are set to open at 7 p.m., and at 7:30 p.m., attendees 5 years old and younger will be released onto the field for a “pre-egg hunt,” returning this year by popular demand, before the lights go out for the egg hunt for all ages at 8 p.m., come rain or shine, at a cost of $5 per person, with all the money raised going toward the American Cancer Society.

Jesica Stickles explained that the main egg hunt will be open to ages 3 to 103, “so no 104-year-olds should be sneaking in there,” and encouraged teenagers and adults alike to attend.

“This year, there are a couple changes,” Stickles said. “We’re starting an hour earlier, due to Easter Sunday being the next day. We’ve also moved the 5-years-and-younger area to the end of the field, so they’ll have a bigger area to hunt eggs”

While hundreds of plastic Easter eggs will be filled with candy, others will contain raffle tickets for cash prizes, gift cards donated by local businesses and more.

As always, attendees should bring their own baskets and flashlights. For more information, call Stickles at 425-931-8553.
