Adult Flashlight Egg Hunt for Community Gardens

DeKalb County Community Gardens will host an Adult Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt on Friday, March 23. This fundraising event is sure to take you back to your childhood.

Ages 18 and older are invited to bring an Easter basket, flashlight and running shoes and get ready to search for 1,000 Easter eggs after the sun goes down. The eggs will be hidden on a 2-acre parcel. Inside some of the hidden eggs will be special prizes.

The event will take place at Walnut Grove Vocational Farm, 33600 Pearl St. in Kirkland. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. for check-in with a shotgun start at 7:45 p.m. Hot chocolate and water will be available for purchase.

The top prize hidden in an Easter egg is a $100 Visa gift card. Other prizes have been donated from a variety of local businesses and individuals including Barbara J. Runne, DDS, Le Print Express, Ralph’s Car Wash & Detail Center, Sweet Dream Desserts & Catering, Kirkland Family Restaurant, The Gracie Center, Inboden’s Meat Market and Find What Moves You Yoga by Angelica.

Tickets cost $10 a person and can be purchased at www.dekalbgardens.org, click the Shop button.
