The Golden Egg Hunt

For 2018, our Easter Event has changed. Please read below for the details:

In an effort to get families and friends in the parks spending time together....

5000 plastic, colored Easter eggs along with 100 Golden Eggs will be hidden in various parks in Harrisburg: Stallings Park, Harrisburg Park, Pharr Mill Park, Harris Depot Park and Veteran's Park.

Families may search for eggs between Saturday, March 24, 2018 and Thursday, March 29, 2018 during park hours. 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 on Thursday, March 29, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. 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 on Thursday, March 29th from 6pm to 8pm....

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 stop by and visit each vendor to collect eggs while you're at the event!

Food will be available at Harrisburg Park for purchase from 6pm to 8pm from: Two Chix and a Truck Food Truck, 100 Main Beef and BBQ Food Truck, Hungry Howie's Pizza, Pelican's SnoBalls, Rocky River Kettle Corn and Anna's Sweet Treats

  • Please note, there will be NO Easter Egg Hunts the evening of Thursday, March 29. We encourage families to visit the parks during the week to search for eggs.

  • If you do not find any eggs or are not able to search during the week, you are still welcome to join us at Harrisburg Park on Thursday, March 29 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for other activities!
