Hop on over to Holiday Harbor Saturday for ‘glow’ Easter egg hunt


The Canyon Lake Family Matters Club is hosting its third annual Glow-in-the-Dark Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Holiday Harbor Park.

The community-wide event will begin with carnival games and crafts followed by a glow-in-the-dark Easter egg hunt. The “glow” eggs add a unique twist on the traditional Easter egg hunt.

The egg-citing event will feature carnival game booths, prizes, bounce house, face-painting, temporary tattoos, music and craft tables where kids can make their own Easter crafts.

There will be a shopping section with vendors selling Easter gifts and other items.

The snack bar will be open and serving hot dogs, nachos and other snack foods. Non-alcoholic drinks also will be available for purchase.

The glow-in-the-dark Easter egg hunt begins at approximately 7:15 p.m. Children should bring a basket or bag to hold their eggs.

This year, the Family Matters Club divided up the egg hunt into age groups. The times and ages are as follows:

Ages three and under: 7:15

Ages four to six: 7:25

Ages seven to ten: 7:35

Ages ten and older: 7:45

One parent is allowed to help their children in the three and under age group if necessary. No adults will be allowed in the ages four and up categories.

A $5 wristband is required for the egg hunt and unlimited carnivals games.

Children may keep all the eggs they collect or turn them in for a goody bag and meal certificate that can be used at participating restaurants.

The Family Matters Club is in need of a few more volunteers. Those interested in volunteering for this event should contact Event Coordinator Adena Evans at adenaevans@gmail.com.

The Family Matters Club is hosting a family friendly comedy show on April 23. For more information, see page B11.

The Family Matters Club is open to all residents, young and old, kids or no kids. Monthly meetings are held the first day of the month.

The club puts on several events throughout the year to benefit the community and to raise funds for future events and provide philanthropic donations.
