From Visit Huntington Beach:
Easter egg hunts and face painting never grow old, no matter how old you grow. The City of Huntington Beach Community Services Department and the Kiwanis Club of Huntington Beach understand this nugget of nostalgia and are hosting an action-packed day honoring Easter and candy on Saturday, April 4, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Huntington Beach Sports Complex.
Roughly 2,500 pounds of sweets will be hidden throughout the hunt area. The free candy hunt kicks off at 9 a.m. and is organized into eight different age groups, including a special first slot for children with disabilities. For little ones who prefer a healthier alternative, sugary treats can be traded for healthy snacks, like pre-packaged sliced apples or bags of baby carrots, courtesy of Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center.
The good times continue to roll throughout the day with face painting, live music, games, refreshments, fire department and community services displays, more than 50 local businesses demonstrating their wares, and of course, photo ops with the Easter Bunny. Nearly 8,000 residents attended the 2014 hunt, so expect an impressive turnout.
