This year’s Harrisonburg Parks & Recreation Egg Hunt is guaranteed to have something for everyone in the family with the introduction of the event’s first ever adaptive egg hunt for individuals with physical or cognitive disabilities.
The adaptive hunt will take place alongside the annual egg hunt on Saturday, April 1. The adaptive event, named the “Eggstraordinary Egg Hunt,” and featuring a variety of adaptations to make it suitable
for participants of all ages and abilities, will be drop-in style and take place from 10 a.m. to noon in the Lucy F. Simms Center gymnasium, 620 Simms Ave. Adaptions will include eggs with magnets for easy
pick up using provided wands, eggs on the walls and eggs hanging down to participant’s chest height. Each participant will collect 10 eggs and turn them in for a prize.
Harrisonburg has hosted an egg hunt every year, except 2020, but this is the first time any adaptions have been made.
