HERE COME THE EGGS! LOOK OUT BELOW!
Join us as we celebrate the coming of spring with our annual egg drop event. Pilots from the
Clare Municipal Airport will be on hand to drop over 1,800 plastic eggs from an airplane!
Youth ages 12 and under are welcome (with parent participation) to retrieve the eggs and to
redeem them for candy. Before and after the event there will be children’s activities and in
addition, The Easter Bunny and Lavender the Clown will be stopping by. Parents please dress
your children warm and bring an Easter basket! Also, don’t forget the camera! If there is
inclement weather, the planes will not be able to fly, however we will still have an egg “hunt” on
the ground. Additional volunteers are needed before and during this event. If you would like to
volunteer, please contact Parks and Recreation at 386-7541 x213 or [email protected]
