Triana, Madison schedule Easter egg hunts

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.

The egg hunt for one- through five-year-olds will start at 9 a.m. The hunt for six- to 10-year-olds will begin at 10:30 a.m.

On Dublin soccer fields, youngsters can enjoy face painting and playing on inflatable amusements. Organizers said that the children might even catch a glimpse of the Easter Bunny hanging around the park. Children will have a chance to win prizes.

During the hunts, the Easter Bunny will be available for photographs with the youngsters.

To attend the Egg-stravaganza, free shuttle service will run from Bob Jones High School to Dublin Park. Only motorists with handicap parking permits can park at Dublin Park.

For more information, please call 256-772-9300.

Also on April 8, the Special Needs Easter Egg-stravaganza will open at 1:30 p.m. for check-in and registration in Dublin’s main building. Sponsors for the event are The City of Madison, Madison City Disability Advocacy Board or MCDAB, Autism Support of Alabama, Making Connections and AMBUCS.

An egg hunt at 2 p.m. is dedicated for infants through three-year-olds. Other hunts will be held for 10- through 15-year-olds and another for ages 15 and older.

From 2:30 to 4 p.m., indoor activities inside Dublin’s main building will be sensory-friendly with games and crafts. The Easter Bunny will attend for photographs. The children can enjoy snacks and refreshments.

This event is intended for individuals with special needs of all ages, along with their immediate families. Families must RSVP to participate in the event by April 1 by sending email to mc@autism-alabama.org. Include the child’s name and age.
