Hop into Frankenmuth for the Bavarian Easter Egg Hunt taking place Saturday, April 3! Enjoy an outdoor and social-distanced egg hunt with two age categories and a special event just for dogs at Frankenmuth River Place Shops in the heart of Michigan’s Little Bavaria.
Registration is limited to 200 children and costs $10 to participate. Each registration will include a bag with a special surprise and a mini golf pass good for one child at the Bavarian Inn Lodge’s Family Fun Center, located just a minute’s walk from River Place Shops. After the egg hunt is over, participants can return their emptied Easter eggs and receive a $5 game card for use at the Bavarian Inn Lodge's Family Fun Center!
The egg hunt will be divided into two separate age categories – children ages 0 to 5 years old with the egg hunt taking place in the Fest Platz area and children 6 to 10, taking place throughout the shopping complex, with a limit of 10 eggs per child. The registration form requires each parent signing up their child to confirm the age to ensure the proper amount of eggs is placed ahead of the egg hunt.
Eggs are filled with a combination of candy, arcade tokens from the River Place Game Room in the Cass River Bar and Grill, and special prizes that can be redeemed at participating retailers.
Registration for the doggie egg hunt is limited to 100 dogs and costs $10 to participate. Each registration will include a bag with a special treat and surprise offer from Hello Cats and Dogs, located within River Place Shops. The doggie egg hunt will take place throughout the shopping complex, with a limit of 5 eggs per dog that will have small treats inside.
All participants must register in advance through Events.com for the Bavarian Easter Egg Hunt!
