Muddy Conditions Force Lufkin Egg-Stravaganza Indoors
The forecast for Saturday morning in the Pineywoods is calling for mostly cloudy skies and a 10% chance of rain. Usually, that type of forecast wouldn't stop an outdoor activity.
But, when over 3 inches of rain has recently fallen and more heavy downpours are possible, an Easter egg hunt on a baseball field is going to be problematic. Granted, sloshing around in the mud for Easter eggs would probably be one of the highlights of the year for a kid, but for everyone else...not so much.
A Change of Plans for the 20th Annual Egg-Stravaganza
The City of Lufkin Parks and Recreation Department has made the smart decision to make some needed alterations to the 20th Annual Easter Egg-Stravaganza. The fields at Kit McConnico will be in no shape for an egg hunt this Saturday morning, so here are the details for plan B.
- The event will take place this Saturday, April 8 from 10-noon at the Lufkin Parks and Recreation Center located at 516 Montrose Street in Lufkin
- The event will be a walk-thru with each family walking through the gym, receiving 15 eggs per child, and then taking a free picture with the Easter Bunny. There will be no actual hunt for the eggs.
- Kids need to bring their own baskets, none will be available at the event
The times are as follows for these age groups:
- 0-2 and 5-7: 10 am
- 3-4 and 8-10: 11 am
- 11-12: noon
