Another event, a flashlight egg hunt, will take place starting at 6 p.m. March 31 at the Cherokee Veterans Park Playground, 7345 Cumming Highway near Canton.
Attendees can explore the kids zone, make and take crafts, dance to music and enjoy craft and food vendors while waiting for the Easter Bunny to arrive. Children can participate in an egg hunt separated by age group starting at 8:30 p.m.
The event costs $10 per child, and cash is preferred. For more information, contact Jessica Ascenzo at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-501-8002.
Lastly, the Cherokee County Aquatic Center, located at 1200 Wellstar Way near Canton, will host its annual “Eggs-traordinary Extravaganza” on April 8. Children aged 3 and under can participate in an egg hunt on the lawn from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., while children aged four to 12 can participate in an underwater egg hunt.

The cost is $15 per child and time slots must be reserved for the egg hunt at PlayCherokee.org. Attendees are encouraged to bring a camera to take pictures with the Easter Bunny.
“We’re excited to kick off the spring season hosting these Easter-themed events at these Cherokee Recreation and Parks locations,” said Cherokee County Recreation and Park Director Jay Worley. “We strive to provide a family-friendly destination where guests of all ages can enjoy our special events and a place where visitors can experience the very best of what Cherokee County has to offer.”
All outdoor events are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather.
