This year, the Easter Bunny will be hiding over 15,000 eggs filled with candy and special prizes for children ages one through six. The hunts will be held by age groups:  1 & 2-year-olds, 3-year-olds, 4-year-olds, and 5 & 6 year-olds.  One parent will be allowed to assist children ages 2 and under. All other age groups will hunt without parents. Each hunt will have one Grand Prize egg and the lucky hunter will receive a basket full of candy, prizes, and toys.

In addition to hunting for eggs, there will be unlimited rides on a jumbo slide, bounce houses, obstacle courses, and other family-friendly amusements including photos with the Easter Bunny. Families are invited to bring lunches to enjoy a picnic at their favorite spot in the park. 

Tickets can be purchased in advance at Ida Lee Park Recreation Center or online at www.idalee.org. Tickets are $10 per child. Registration will begin along with our spring Leesburg at Leisure registration. Pre-registration ends at 8 p.m. on April 12, 2019. 

Children not hunting but wanting to participate in amusements can pay $5 at the event gate to receive a wristband. Parents will not be charged.

Parking will be available in the front fields located off North King Street (Business Route 15).  The Easter Egg Hunt will be held rain or shine. For more information, or to register, call Ida Lee Park Recreation Center at 703-777-1368.
