Meet the Easter Bunny at April 1 event to be held at Varble Hill and Deer Grove Leisure Center
Bensenville, Ill.—Hop to it! It’s fun for the whole family when the Bensenville Park District’s annual Egg Hunt and Eggstravaganza returns Saturday, April 1, to Varble Park Hill and the Deer Grove Leisure Center (DGLC), 1000 W. Wood St., Bensenville. The event is free, thanks to the generous support of Grand Subaru, and no registration is necessary.
The egg hunt begins at 10 a.m. for little ones age 3 and under, with other age groups commencing at 10:10 (ages 4-5, 6-7) and 10:20 a.m. (ages 8-9 and 10 and older). Thousands of candy-filled eggs will be scattered across the hill at Varble Park, just waiting to be found. Don’t forget to bring a bag or container to hold them all!
After the egg hunt, be sure to bring the whole family into the DGLC for fun and games, crafts and inflatables. All are invited to take photos with the Easter Bunny until the event ends at 12:30 p.m.
Wood Street Fitness also invites families to join in Family Storytime with Yoga Bunny—a premium, interactive mind-body storytelling session in conjunction with the egg hunt—11 a.m. to noon, in the DGLC’s exercise room.
