Children are invited to hunt for more than 7,000 candy filled eggs during the Flagler Museum’s Easter Egg Hunt and Egg Roll on Saturday, April 19, 2014. Gates open at 9:00 a.m. and events begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. Admission is $10 for children and $18 for adults. The festivities are sponsored by the Palm Beach Daily News.
The Museum grounds will be sectioned off into age-appropriate areas so everyone, including toddlers, will have an opportunity to participate. Museum gates open at 9:00 a.m. when children may have their picture taken with the Easter Bunny and engage in Easter-themed craft projects, and games. The Egg Hunt begins promptly at 10:00 a.m.
After the Hunt children are invited to join in special games, including the Gilded Age game of egg rolling. Egg rolling began on the South Lawn of the White House when President Rutherford B. Hayes welcomed children to the first White House Easter Egg Roll in 1878. Special prizes will be awarded to the game winners. Children are encouraged to bring their own Easter baskets. Wooden egg rolling spoons will be provided. Every child will receive a Flagler Museum commemorative Easter Egg.
