LOGAN SQUARE — Kids can hunt for Easter eggs and win prizes in Logan Square at the end of this month and into April.
Unity Park Advisory Council leaders are hosting a free, neighborhood-wide Easter egg hunt March 25-April 2.
Photos of Easter eggs will be placed in the windows of businesses across Logan Square. Parents will be able to download and print a scavenger list to guide their kids through the hunt. The list will be posted to the group’s website later this month.
The list will also be available for in-person pickup at several locations, including Unity Park’s Little Library at 2636 N. Kimball Ave. and the Logan Square Chamber of Commerce at 2808 N. Milwaukee Ave. More pickup locations will be announced in coming weeks.
Kids will be able to exchange the Easter egg photos they find for an Easter bag filled with goodies while supplies last 10 a.m.-1 p.m. April 3 at Unity Park. The Easter bunny will make an appearance, group leaders said.
The event, which is being done in partnership with Grace Church at 3225 W. Wrightwood Ave., is a pandemic-friendly version of the event Unity Park leaders have thrown in the past. The group canceled last year’s event due to the pandemic.
“Last year, [the council] had to cancel our Unity Park Easter Egg Hunt, but this year it’s back in a fun, new and safe way that will also help support local businesses who have been impacted by the pandemic,” group outreach coordinator Robert Castillo said in a news release.
“We want to create an opportunity for families to experience the event in an expanded community setting and highlight our wonderful and supportive community.”
Unity Park leaders are looking for sponsors to help cover the cost of the free event. To become a sponsor, contact the group’s co-director of development Beth Juarez at email@example.com by March 12.
