37th Annual Easter Egg Hunt
Saturday, March 31, 2018
Celebrate Spring at the 37th Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 31, sponsored by Wells Fargo and Auburn Parks and Recreation, at beautiful Kiesel Park. This hunt is the largest Easter egg hunt in Auburn with more than 35,000 eggs hidden over a four-acre area.
Four age groups are eligible to participate in hunting for eggs: 3 and under, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12. These children have the chance to look for over 1,000 prize eggs in each category. Prizes include stuffed animals, Easter related toys and much more.
Thanks to many local businesses, children also have the chance to hunt for golden eggs. These eggs contain special prizes from these businesses such as gift cards, birthday party packages and more.
The schedule for this event is as follows:

Wells Fargo has sponsored this event for 35 years. Each year, they give away free balloons and soft drinks to the public.
The Auburn Easter Egg Hunt began in 1981 at Auburn High School with only 500 eggs. It moved to Duck Samford Park to accommodate growing attendance until a surge in public participation caused the egg hunt to outgrow its second home in 1993. For the last 25 years, Kiesel Park has hosted the hunt and its continued growth.
