Inlet Continues Adult Easter Egg Hunt Tradition

Head to Inlet on April 27th for the Adirondacks’ only adult Easter egg hunt. A traditional children’s egg hunt will also take place, but bring your own basket to hold some wonderful local prizes.

Held at Inlet’s Fern Park on Loomis Road, the Inlet Youth Commission’s egg hunting tradition always coincides with the return of area school children from their two-week spring break. The children’s egg hunt starts at 1 pm and is open to all children (12 and under). All participants of the children’s egg hunt receive a goody bag and the chance to win special prizes. Fern Park is the perfect location, with a lot of area to cover in search of hidden eggs.

In its fourth year, the adult hunt begins at 5 pm at the same location. Gift certificates to dining establishments and local shops, movie passes, and adult beverages are just a few of the pleasantries Inlet offers for its grown-up egg hunt. After the search is completed, adults (21+) are invited to a potluck at the Screamen Eagle. Bring a dish to share, but beverages will be available for purchase.

Inlet always has a full calendar of events and the annual Easter egg hunt is a perfect kick-off to the warmer weather. Other upcoming Inlet events include the 18th Annual Community Pride Day on May 1, Fire and Spice on May 5, Otter Paddlesports on May 17-19, and the Great Adirondack Garage Sale on May 24. Enjoy spring!
