This Saturday, March 19 will be a fun-filled day of Fuquay-Varina Easter Events for the youngsters in the community, as just down the road from your house in the South Lakes new home neighborhood the morning begins with the town’s annual Easter Egg Hunt, followed by the “Candy Hop” through the streets of downtown.

The Fuquay Varina Easter Events will start with the egg hunt at 10:00 a.m at South Park, located at 900 South Main Street. Children ages 10 and under are welcome to participate and are asked to simply arrive on time and bring a basket or a bag to collect the goodies they find at the Fuquay Varina Easter Events.

The kids will divided into three groups for the egg hunt based upon their age, and with thousands of candy and toy filled eggs to be spread throughout the lower ball fields at South Park, all involved, both younger and older will have plenty of treats to fill their basket at Saturday morning’s Fuquay Varina Easter Events. The Easter Bunny will also be on hand to pose for pictures and meet the kids.

Part two of this Saturday’s Fuquay Varina Easter Events will take place immediately following the Easter Egg hunting and shift to the town’s downtown area for the “Candy Hop.”  Much like a traditional Halloween “Trick or Treat,” the businesses and merchants of downtown on Main and Broad Streets hand out goodies to the kids as they pass through with their parents between the hours of 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Both of these annual Fuquay Varina Easter Events are completely free of charge and a great way for your family to get out and enjoy some community spirit and celebrate the upcoming holiday while supporting local businesses.
