Time to get cracking: Our annual Easter egg hunt is this Saturday; kids expected to break out of their shells

2-year-old Cruz Shober prepares for the hunt.

This just in: Tahiti Village safety and security director Rich Ingling says to be on the lookout for a roaming horde of ravenous Easter egg collectors this Saturday morning, April 19, in the vicinity of the Island Courtyard and the Lazy River.

Don’t be fooled by their innocent appearance, Rich advises. These mostly young and adorable hunter-gatherers will stop at nothing to fill their baskets to the brim with plastic candy-filled eggs, of which a goodly bounty of 3,300 is up for grabs.

The annual Easter egg hunt is the most anticipated event on our spring activities calendar. The 2013 hunt attracted approximately 200 youngsters, and this year’s is expected to draw at least that many.

Hunters will meet at 9 a.m. inside the Island Courtyard, then descend upon the Lazy River to search for the loot. The two-hour event concludes with prize contests, an Easter basket raffle, and a performance by the delightful parrots from Squawk! It’s a great time for the whole family.
