The Golden Egg Hunt

Golden Egg Hunt event flyer

2019 event dates are currently TBD. Please check back for 2019 event information.

In an effort to get families and friends in the parks spending time together, 5,000 plastic, colored Easter eggs, along with 100 golden eggs will be hidden in various parks throughout Harrisburg: Stallings Park, Harrisburg Park, Pharr Mill Park, Harris Depot Park and Veterans Park.

Families may search for eggs during park hours on specified dates (TBD). Plastic colored eggs will have a small piece of candy or a small toy that you may keep.

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 Harrisburg Park during our Easter Event (date TBD). Prizes include: tickets to the Charlotte Checkers, the Discovery Place, Charlotte Knights Baseball and prizes such as Easter baskets, toys, games and other goodies!

Join Us at Harrisburg Park

We invite children and their families to Harrisburg Park (191 Sims Parkway) between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. to enjoy other fun Easter activities including vendors, the Easter Bunny, face painting, food, inflatables and more!

For the Little Ones

Each vendor (non-food) will also be handing out plastic eggs with a goody inside. Be sure to visit each vendor to collect eggs while you're at the event!

  • Please note: There will be NO Easter Egg Hunts at Harrisburg Park (date TBD). We encourage families to visit the parks during the week to search for eggs.

  • If you can not attend the event and have found a golden egg, you may claim your golden egg prize at the Harrisburg Parks & Recreation Office, 4100 Main St.
