MADISON – After a cold, wet winter, both Madison and Triana will host Easter egg hunts to herald the holiday and the long-awaited dawning of Spring.
Triana Public Library is working in partnership with the Town of Triana Parks and Recreation Department to host a Community Easter Egg Hunt on April 1. Children will start their searches at noon; the event will extend to 2 p.m.
The egg hunt will start on the library’s patio. Coordinators will divide age groups into different hunting locations. As an added bonus, a Senior Brunch will treat older citizens in the Town Hall community room starting at 12:30 p.m.
Triana Public Library’s address is 357 Record St., just south of Triana Municipal Building. Mayor Mary Caudle welcomes residents to come out and enjoy an afternoon of fun for the entire family.
A springtime tradition in Madison, the Easter “Egg”-stravaganza is scheduled for April 8 at Dublin Park, 8324 Old Madison Pike. Sponsors for the event are City of Madison Parks and Recreation Department and Rocket City Martial Arts.
