The end of winter is finally in sight, and it is time to celebrate at Reiman Gardens! On Saturday, April 19, the Ames Jaycees will host a Spring Egg Hunt at Reiman Gardens at 9:30 a.m.

Festivities will include an egg hunt for all children sixth grade and younger, although children of all ages are welcome to attend and watch. Children will have the opportunity to search for colorful eggs to trade in for a goodie bag. Goodie bags will be provided for the first 400 children. The morning will also include craft and activity stations, as well as a visit from Reiman Gardens’ Spring Bunny.

The Gardens will open at 9 a.m., and the egg hunt will begin at 9:30 a.m. Immediately following the egg hunt, youth craft stations and activities will run until 11 a.m. Admission is free for everyone during the Egg Hunt.

In case of inclement weather, all craft and activity stations will be moved indoors, goodie bags will still be distributed until 11 a.m. or when supplies are gone, but the egg hunt will not be held.
