TIPP CITY — Ginghamsburg Church will host a free community Easter egg hunt Saturday, April 12 at its Tipp City Campus. Everyone is invited to this event that is predicted to draw thousands of people from around the community. This year Ginghamsburg is hiding 50,000 plastic eggs filled with more than 100,000 pieces of candy for children ages 12 and under.
In addition to the community Easter egg hunt, the front lawn will host an Easter petting zoo with chicks, sheep, donkeys, ducks and bunnies. Complimentary refreshments will be available and include coffee and doughnuts. Kids will enjoy Easter-themed games and activities as well as have the opportunity to meet and take pictures with the Easter bunny.
Parents should plan to arrive at 9:30 a.m. to register their child for the egg hunt. Participants will be divided into four age groups; the first hunt will begin at 10:10 a.m. with the rest to follow. Each egg hunt will have special eggs containing golden tickets with prizes that include candy, toys and much more.
During the Easter egg hunt parents can walk around with their child to experience the resurrection story reenacted live every 10 minutes.
“It’s exciting to have the community come together and not only experience an Easter egg hunt, but experience the true meaning of Easter by getting the chance to hear the resurrection story. This is a fun and safe environment for families during an exciting time of year,” said Ryan Manger, Ginghamsburg Children’s Ministry Elementary and Special Events Coordinator.
Ginghamsburg Church’s Easter weekend starts the following weekend Saturday, April 19, with worship at 3:30 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. as well as Sunday, April 20, at 7, 8:30, 10 and 11:30 a.m. Families are invited to discover with Ginghamsburg the true meaning of Easter at any of the seven Easter celebrations located at 6759 S. County Road 25-A in Tipp City.
