EGGstinct Egg Hunt at Union tomorrow


Bosco Student Plaza is scheduled to play host to the EGGstinct Easter Egg Hunt Saturday, sponsored by the Union Program Council.

Beginning at 10 a.m., anyone under the age of 12 can hunt for eggs in the plaza, or in the K-State Student Union courtyard if it rains.

“The children will be broken up into age groups,” said Lauren Porterfield, junior in mass communications and co-chair for the egg hunt. “We want everyone to have a fair chance at getting eggs.”

Porterfield also said the eggs — which contain candy — would be decorated to look like dinosaur eggs, and they would be much larger than regular Easter eggs. Willie the Wildcat will also be at the egg hunt, along with the Holiday Bunny.

“It’s an annual event that we do for the Manhattan community and the K-State community,” Porterfield said.

This will be the fourth year that UPC has put on the event, which used to be a well-held tradition at K-State. Porterfield said the event doesn’t ever last very long, but the kids really enjoy it.

“It goes by really fast because the eggs are found pretty quickly, and then it’s over,” Porterfield said.
