The North Flushing Baptist Church is bringing their hunt back on Saturday from 1-3 p.m. The event, open to everyone toddler-aged through 12 years old, promises plenty of candy, popcorn, face-painting and a chance to win big prizes. The church is located at 7500 W. Mt. Morris Rd. in Flushing.

On Saturday, March 31, the annual Flushing Firefighters Incorporated Easter Egg Hunt will be held in Riverview Park.

The event is scheduled for noon, but Flushing Fire Chief Jim Michael recommends families arrive at 11:30 a.m. to be sure no one is left behind. Michael said the hunt lasts, on average, three minutes, due to the high volume of participants.

As in past years, hunters will be splitup by age and separated into different lanes to avoid unfair competition. Immediately following the hunt, the Easter Bunny will be available for pictures, an all-inclusive raffle is scheduled and the Flushing Firefighters Incorporated is bringing two trucks for kids to explore.

Details: Call the Flushing Fire Department at 810-659-1241. Riverview Park address: 203 South Cherry St., Flushing.
