The Kingman Parks and Recreation Department is once again holding its annual Easter Egg Hunt Saturday at Centennial Park, just like it did in 2016 when crowds of parents and children attended the event that was followed by an Egg Toss.

KINGMAN – The city of Kingman Parks and Recreation is sponsoring an Easter egg hunt at 11 a.m. Saturday at Centennial Park softball fields.

All ages are welcome to hunt for the eggs as a family. Each field will be covered with candy, plastic eggs and donated items from Taco Bell and Pizza Hut.

Secret eggs will be randomly placed in the hunting areas and can be redeemed for paper-marked prizes inside the eggs. Only one special egg is allowed for each child.

Following the Easter egg hunt at about 11:20 a.m., there will be an egg toss for ages 13 and above on Centennial Park Field No. 1. Entries are on a first-come, first-serve basis until all the eggs are handed out.

Winners of the Easter coloring contest for grades K-6, sponsored by Desert De Oro Foods, will receive their awards at the event.

Parks and Recreation has discount vouchers available for a breakfast buffet with the Easter Bunny at Golden Coral restaurant. Pick them up by 5 p.m. today at the office, 3333 N. Harrison St.

Also on Saturday, the Fraternal Order of Eagles, 4536 Patsy Lane, is holding its annual Easter egg hunt from noon to 3 p.m. for children ages 2-12. Bring your own basket. There will be prizes for age groups, and lunch will be served.

Easter egg hunts aren’t just for kids.

For the Luv of Paws animal rescue and sanctuary is putting on an Easter egg hunt for dogs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at Kingman Petco, 3320 Stockton Hill Road.

For $5 admission, your dog gets to hunt for 25 eggs, each with a treat inside and prizes for finding the big chick eggs. Easter photos of the dogs are $2, with all proceeds benefiting For the Luv of Paws.

The event includes a special kitty adoption day, said Cherie DaLynn, founder of For the Luv of Paws.
