Do you want a fun, local event that is free, perfect for tots and youth, and safe and simple. It's an event you'll find each year sponsored by the City of Huntington Beach Parks and Recreation. And what better place to hold that Easter celebration than the lush lawns of Central Park, where real bunnies romp and roam, visible if you sit still and watch the nearby bushes as the run for cover between them.
City of Huntington Beach partners with Huntington Beach Kiwanis Club for the Annual Easter Hunt at Central park, Sports Complex. This event begins with a pancake breakfast with “hunt” times starting at 9 a.m. Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Kiwanis and its youth-oriented Service Leadership Programs serve communities in more than 80 countries. Huntington Beach is fortunate to partner with the HB Kiwanis Club on the Annual Easter Hunt and Family Fun Day.
Each year when Easter comes around, the City of Huntington Beach becomes the champion of this event for ages toddler to around 10 years. Held in segments with disabled youth in one hunt, and age groups staggered at increments, the candy is supplied by nonprofit groups and the city. Chocolates and chewies are the mainstay. Kids simply need wander a few feet or yards and begin picking them up off the ground.
There's nothing challenging about this activity, but it's popularity is amazing. Parents have found this tried and true activity is perfect for young kids, especially. Bringing your own bag or basket is an advantage, as you can fill it with the goodies scattered about.
Often the City of Huntington Beach beauty queens make an appearance and talk with the kids, and the Duck-a-thon folks sell their rubber duckies for their upcoming event held each May.
Volunteers spread out more than 1,000 pounds of candy through
Central Park for the traditional Easter Hunt. Huntington Beach children won’t have
to wait for the Easter Bunny to come to fill their baskets with candy.
The Community Services Department and the Huntington Beach Kiwanis have hosted this event since 1990. Huntington Beach Recreation Supervisors who organizes the event say that more than 1000 pounds of candy are distributed during this celebration.
There are all kinds of other activities to entertain. The Community Services Department has arranged visits from a number of city agencies. Children will be able to explore a police car and a fire engine. Lifeguards will be on hand to talk about beach safety while City Works shows off tractors. The event also boasts crafts, music and games, complete with prizes for every player.
