In case of rain, all ages should go to the Jacksonville Boys & Girls Club at 10 a.m. For more information call 982-4171. Participants must arrive at Excell Park at 10 a.m. After the Easter Egg Hunt stay for a Family Fun Day event for the April Park of the Month. All ages welcome. Food and admission is free. Bring your friends, family, and fun.

The Jacksonville Boys & Girls Club and the Jacksonville Parks and Recreation Department are holding an Underwater Easter Egg Hunt for children ages 3-12.

The event is being held in the pool at the Jacksonville Community Center, on Monday April 14, from 6-8:30 p.m. The event is a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club.

Children will take the plunge at the community center pool in an interesting twist on the typical Easter egg hunt. They will dive for eggs and a chance to win prizes, Splash Zone passes and more.

Admission is $5 per child and $3 for any parent accompanying children who cannot swim.

The public is invited to sign up for the event by calling 501-982-4171 Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Same day registration is at 5 p.m. if space is available. Swimsuits are required.
