Hidden Treasure: Sports Park to host city’s annual Easter egg hunt !

Brownsville, TX – Volunteers were busy as the Easter bunny on Wednesday, filling thousands of plastic eggs with Easter treats to be deployed at the Brownsville Sports Park for the city’s annual Easter egg hunt from 6-8 p.m. today.

In all, 33,000 eggs were being filled with candy, toys and tickets for a free child’s buffet at the Golden Corral. They are to be disbursed in and around five separate fields at the sports park, said Michelle Otero, special events coordinator for the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.

“ The goal is to get the public to come out and have a great time,” Otero said, correcting herself to say “egg-celent time.”

At Parks and Recreation headquarters, 1338 E. Eighth St., box after box of plastic eggs waited to be filled, and big recycling containers to hold them surrounded Otero. She said the task of filling all the eggs couldn’t be completed without the help of the many volunteers who help out at the former Boys & Girls Club.

The volunteers are mostly high school age students and come from the Brownsville Independent School District, IDEA Public Schools and the Keep Brownsville Beautiful organization, she said.

The eggs are being filled and sorted into 10 large recycling receptacles, two for each of five divisions: special needs, 1-3 years old, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12. It calculates to 1,650 eggs per bin and two bins or 3,300 eggs per age group.

After the hunt, people will be encouraged to return the empty eggs to the recycling bins, which will be strategically situated around the park, Otero said.

“Our target is everybody,” she said of the hunt, as well as other upcoming Parks and Recreation Department events. These include Earth Fest on April 27 and the Star Wars-themed Rebel Fest on May 4.

Summer Parks and Recreation programs begin June 3 and continue through Aug. 9.
