The annual Easter egg hunt will take place at 10 a.m. this Saturday, March 23, at Simpson Park.

The event, as in past years, is sponsored by the Grand River Area Family YMCA in cooperation with the Chillicothe Parks Department.

The horn is set to sound at exactly 10 a.m., so participants are advised to come early. Parking is as always at a premium, so please plan accordingly, officials say.

In all, 4,000 eggs will be spread throughout four different locations at the park. Age groups are 1 to 3 years old, 4 to 5 years old, 6 to 7 years old and 8 to 10 years old.
