Looking to cure Spring fever? The Red Boiling Springs Community Easter Egg Hunt is a guaranteed remedy! This year’s hunt is scheduled for Sunday, March 22nd at the E. Main Street City Park. Egg hunts will begin at the log cabin and work their way south toward the Knight Pavilion. The 0-3 yr hunt begins at 2:00 pm at the log cabin. Then, the 4-6 yr hunt begins at 2:30 pm at the Valley View Drive covered bridge. Finally, the 7-up hunt begins at 3:00 pm next to the Knight Pavilion. After each age group hunt, games will follow at the same locations. A new community partner, Calvary Baptist Church, will provide free hot dogs and drinks this year at the Knight Pavilion once the hunts are over. As always--the Easter Bunny will be available for photos. Sounds like the perfect antidote for that cabin fever! We invite everyone to spring on out to enjoy the fun and our beautiful community. See y’all soon.
