March 24: New Germany's EGGstreme Easter Egg Hunt
10 a.m.-2 p.m. Lake House (Rain or shine)

Unlike most egg hunts, this hunt will feature 1,000 eggs hidden along 10 miles of trails within the park. 

This is a FAMILY event, and will involve hiking on trails with various difficulty ratings (some may not be suitable for small children). All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian throughout the entire activity.

Families can register at the Lake House at 403 McAndrews Hill Road, Grantsville any time during the event. 

Prizes will only be awarded to those who are registered and who return their eggs before 3 p.m. A maximum of 20 eggs per family may be collected.

Families should dress appropriately for hiking and bring their own necessities, such as drinking water, snacks and Easter baskets. Trail maps will be provided. Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase.

Sponsors for this year's event include Hilltop Fruit Market (Home of Candyland) and the Friends of New Germany, a nonprofit volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the park.
