Family Friendly: Wet and wild Easter egg hunt in Oak Brook

There will be plastic eggs galore for kids to gather at the Underwater Egg Hunt, 10 a.m. Friday, April 18 at the Family Aquatic Center pool, 1450 Forest Gate Road, Oak Brook.

“Infants to 12-year-olds will be divided into age appropriate swimming areas,” said Jessica Cannaday, marketing and promotions manager for the Oak Brook Park District. “At 10 a.m. sharp, they will hunt for the eggs. Then they get to stay and swim, and hang out with the Easter Bunny until 11:45.”

There will be hundreds of candy- and prize-filled eggs for the picking. “Some of the eggs have tickets that are redeemable for larger prizes,” Cannaday revealed.

The Underwater Egg Hunt is great for families because, “You get to participate in a holiday event no matter what the weather is,” she noted.

The event is free to Oak Brook Park District members, $5 for residents and $7 for nonresidents. Registration is required by April 17.
