Some of the best Easter memories I had growing up revolved around a few things: family, colorful eggs and bunnies. Oh, and candy. We can't forget about the candy!

If you have children but no plans to celebrate Easter 'kid-style', Tyler Parks and Recreation is hosting it's free 16th Annual Twilight Easter Egg Hunt on Thursday, April 13. The event begins at 6:15 p.m., which begins with entertainment and ends with a good old-fashioned Easter Egg Hunt on the softball fields of Lindsey Park in Tyler.

Entertainment includes opportunities to take photos with the Bunny, face-painting, clowns, balloon artists, a bounce house and more. Concessions will be sold as well.

There will be four different groups of egg hunters, according to the press release from the City of Tyler and only one group will hunt at a time.

  • Children with special needs at 6:45 p.m.
  • Children ages 3 to 5 at 7 p.m.
  • Children ages 6 to 8 at 7:20 p.m.
  • Children ages 9 to 10 at 7:45 p.m.

Please note parents are not allowed on the field during the hunt except during the special needs time slot. When the sun sets, field lights will illuminate the egg hunting grounds.

The City of Tyler reminds you that this event is free, however kids should bring their own Easter baskets.
