Easter Scavenger Hunt in Henderson

HENDERSON, KY, 3/2/21– The Easter Bunny is still mindful of his need to be socially distanced, so he’s not planning a traditional Easter Egg Hunt again this year, but he did hop into Henderson this week long enough to set up an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt.

Mr. E. Bunny has placed 28 large pictures of Easter eggs in the windows of local government offices and other City facilities, including local parks. He arranged them so they are easy to see from a car; scavenger hunters will not have to go inside any business to find them.

The Easter Bunny encourages scavenger hunters to take a walk to find some of them since spring weather is starting to arrive. Before he left town, he left the City Parks & Recreation Department in charge of the Scavenger Hunt.

But first he asked Santa Claus if he could borrow the Christmas in the Park Post Office Building to collect the Scavenger Hunt entries. Then he redecorated the Post Office for Easter and set it up in Central Park along the Main Street sidewalk.

The Parks Department created an official form for recording the number of each egg and where it was discovered.

The form can be printed from this link: https://cityofhendersonky.org/DocumentCenter/View/3395/Easter-Egg-Scavenger-Hunt-21 (Information is also posted at www.CityOfHendersonKy.org in the “What’s Happening” section of the home page and at www.facebook.com/CityOfHenderson).

According to the press release, you can pick up a paper copy at: Henderson Welcome Center, 101 N. Water St., in the information box next to the front door; The Perch, in the Games box; and at the Parks & Recreation Office, 920 Madison St., during business hours.

When you find all the eggs:

  • Make sure your name and phone number are printed on the form, and all the blanks are filled in with number/location of each egg.
  • Place your finished entry form in Mr. E. Bunny’s Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt Mailbox in Central Park.
  • All entries must be in by April 4, 2021; winners will be contacted by April 9, 2021, to claim their prizes.

Please call the Parks & Recreation Department, 270-831-1274, if you have questions.
