Duquesne area youth are invited to participate in a spring egg hunt Saturday at Memorial Park on Polish Hill.

Preparations for the activities will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. The hunt for eggs will be from 12 to 1 p.m.

The event is sponsored by the Duquesne-West Mifflin Boys and Girls Club and PRIDE (People Residing in Duquesne Equally).

“The annual Easter egg hunt has been an activity in our city for the past 20 years,” said Patricia Bluett, director of the Boys and Girls Club. “This year it will be referred to as the spring egg hunt.”

Children will be divided into three age groups: two to four years, five to seven years and eight to twelve years. Eggs will be hidden in three separate areas for each age group to search for.

Every child receives a bag of candy, and a kite or bubbles to play with while they wait for the hunt to begin.

Each area has 25 special numbered eggs, while all the others will contain candy. The numbered eggs will receive a special gift based on their designated number.
