All are invited to join a children's Easter egg hunt at Lake Junaluska on Saturday, April 15. This egg hunt features more than 10,000 Easter eggs.

“Thousands of eggs are picked up by what seems like thousands of children,” said Jack Ewing, executive director of Lake Junaluska. “Watching those kids descend on Lake Junaluska on Easter Saturday is such a joy. We are so pleased to be able to reach out to the community in this very tangible way to say, ‘You’re welcome here.’”

The Easter egg hunt will take place near Stuart Auditorium beginning at 11:30 a.m. Youth between the ages of 1-12 will find eggs filled with candy or a small toy.

The hunts are separated into three different age categories. The ages 1-3 hunt begins at 11:30 a.m., the ages 4-7 hunt begins at 11:45 a.m. and the ages 8-12 hunt begins at 12 p.m.
