Egg hunt

Kids collect Easter eggs during Newark’s annual egg hunt at White Clay Creek State Park in April 2019. This year's event was cancelled, but the city is offering do-it-yourself kits.

For the second year in a row, the pandemic has forced the cancellation of Newark’s Easter egg hunt at White Clay Creek State Park.

However, this year, the Parks and Recreation Department is offering local families a way to recreate the fun from home.

For $10, each registered child will be given a Hunt @ Home kit containing a dozen pre-filled eggs containing candy and toys, as well as craft supplies, activities and other “springtime goodies.”

Participants must register by March 13 at

Registrants can drive through and pick up Hunt @ Home kits at the Newark Municipal Building, 220 South Main Street, March 24 to 26 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The Parks and Recreation Department is also seeking businesses and individuals interested in donating prizes for the event.
