One of the most photogenic spring rituals is just around the corner - The 17th Annual Rotary Easter Egg Hunt.  Scheduled for Saturday, March 31, the event features one new and numerous time-honored elements, including a new area for toddlers, face-painting, free hot dogs and hot chocolate and, of course, thousands of treat-filled eggs for children.
Annual Rotary Easter Egg Hunt
 
 The Annual Rotary Club of Hillsborough Easter Egg Hunt, a Hillsborough tradition for the past 17 years, will be held this year on Saturday, March 31, beginning at 11 AM at the Youth Football Complex on Triangle Road (Between Auten and South Triangle Roads).  The event activities and snacks are free to Hillsborough families.
 
The Easter Bunny will once again be on hand to meet children and pose for pictures. Two face-painters will be available to decorate children’s faces. And everyone is welcome to enjoy free hot dogs and hot chocolate.
 
New this year, from 11 – 11:30 AM, is a dedicated egg hunt area for one and two-year olds assisted by a parent. Older children will be organized into three age groups with specific starting times to allow parents with children of multiple ages to supervise and photograph each child’s hunt.  Three and four-year olds will start off at 11 AM, followed by five and six-year olds at 11:15 AM, and concluding with seven and eight-year olds at 11:30 AM.  Parents are advised to arrive at least 30 minutes early to allow time for parking at the complex.
