The event is open for children 12 and under. You will need to obtain a valid lift pass to reach the egg hunt area at the bottom of the summit #1 lift. Otherwise, the event is free.

The egg hunt is at 9 a.m. Kids run for eggs and reach for prizes! While some contain candy, a select few eggs may even hold a season pass!

Easter in the Park

Easter in the Park proper takes place on the Saturday eight days prior to Easter. This is the main event for Banner Elk, and the one all the local kids long for!

The 2019 event is slated for April 13th from 11 a.m. to about 3 p.m. The day is separated into a few smaller events. The family can go on the hunt for the bunny. Once found, she can be exchanged for s’mores.

There is expected to be three different egg hunts for the April 13th event.  They are divided by 0 to 4, 5 to 8, and 9 to 12 years of age. Each egg hunt will last about 15 minutes beginning at noon.

Live music and snacks are expected to be present. The Banner Elk Café will host an Easter egg coloring contest while face painting can be found over at the Book Exchange from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The event takes place at Tate-Evans Park. It is located at 210 Park Ave, Banner Elk, NC 28604. While enjoying the festivities for the weekend, you can pop in over for some volleyball, tennis, and paddling. There’s even a kid’s playground, not that they need even more things to do!
