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
