The Golden Egg Hunt

Please Join us in 2021 for the Annual Golden Egg Hunt Event! 

In an effort to get families and friends in the parks spending time together, thousands of plastic, colored Easter eggs, along with 100 golden eggs will be hidden in various parks throughout Harrisburg:  Harrisburg Park, Stallings Park, Pharr Mill Park, Harris Depot Park, Veterans Park and the lawn around Harrisburg Town Hall. 

Families may search for eggs during park hours: Dates TBD. Plastic colored eggs will have a small piece of candy or a small toy that you may keep. Eggs will be hidden at various times during this period.

If you are one of the lucky people to find a grand prize golden egg (with a ticket in it), you can redeem your prize at the Park during our Easter Event. Prizes include: tickets to various outings in the Cabarrus and Mecklenburg County areas plus other goodies such as Easter baskets, toys, and games!

Families, a few things to keep in mind when "hunting" for eggs:

- Please help us to keep your parks clean and green! Please discard of plastic eggs and candy wrappers in trash receptacles. 

-Please be courteous and leave some eggs for others to find!

-Limit one Golden Egg per family. 

-Have fun exploring the parks in Harrisburg!

Join us at the Park:

We invite children and their families to the Park (location and date TBD) to enjoy other fun Easter activities including vendors, the Easter Bunny, face painting, food, and inflatables! This event is free and open to the public.
