It may not always feel like it, but spring has officially sprung on the Plateau and with it comes the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Fun Run Saturday at Allan Yorke Park.

It may not always feel like it, but spring has officially sprung on the Plateau and with it comes the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Fun Run Saturday at Allan Yorke Park.

This year’s event also includes the “Haulin’ Eggs 5K Fun Run,” which will open the morning’s festivities at the Park at 9 a.m., as well as the third annual adult flashlight egg hunt to close the day at 9:30 p.m.

The egg hunt is for children ages 1 to 11 years old. The kids will be separated into age groups once they reach the park.

Children should bring their own basket and camera to make sure they get a picture with the Easter Bunny, who will be on hand for the event.

The hunt begins at 11 a.m. and hunters are advised to be on the line on time as once it begins, it is over in a matter of minutes.

The kids event is free.

Registration for the 5K fun run opens at 8 a.m. with a 9 a.m. start. The entry fee is $20 and includes a free t-shirt.

Then, when evening falls, the “big kids” can take the field for a mad dash of their own. There will be more than 2,000 eggs containing prizes such as gift cards, sodas, chips, candy and more.

The flashlight event is a non-city event being hosted by the Sumner/Bonney Lake Recreation Department. It is for ages 18 and older and the cost is $5 per person.

The flashlight hunt takes place on ball field No. 4, located across Bonney Lake Boulevard from the main fields.

All events will take place rain or shine.
