The annual Easter holiday tradition is returning to Franklin as the City of Franklin. Franklin Kiwanis Club holds the annual egg hunt at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 9, in Fountain Park.
The Rocky Grove High School Honor Society, Franklin Rotary Club and Franklin Fine Arts Council will assist with packing thousands of plastic eggs with coins, candy and coupons donated by local organizations and businesses. The FFAC will prepare the prize baskets. This year’s major prize sponsors include Chris Rakow, Pizza Hut, Eat ‘n Park, RAACA of Venango County, Venango County A.B.A.T.E, Haggerty’s Ice Cream, and Benjamin’s Roadhouse. Special donations were also given by Pastries by Andrea, Leonardo’s Pizza and Wanango Country Club.
The event features four age divisions for those 8 and younger. There are four coupons for special prize baskets in each age group.
The hunt might be the main event, but other Easter-themed events will also take place in Franklin that day. The Franklin Public Library will host a story time from 10 to 10:30 a.m. Rural King is offering photo ops with chicks at Fountain Park from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. A Bunny Petting Station is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Galleria at Olde Liberty. And of course, the Easter Bunny herself will make an appearance in the park.
