Easter egg hunt fans will get their chance to hunt their share of 10,000 eggs when Dundalk's annual Mega Egga Hunt is held March 23.
The Easter Bunny will take over Heritage Park that day (with a rain date of March 30) so children and adults can gather all the prize-containing eggs they can grab.
Organizer Angel Ball promises "fun for everyone" at the event that will feature free food, free pictures of the kids with the Easter Bunny and free goodie bags.
Volunteers, including local church members and residents of Dunmanway Apartments, a senior-citizen complex of which Ball is the manager, are busy stuffing the eggs to give the Easter Bunny a little help during his busy season.
DJ Mike Brilhart of radio station 100.7 The Bay will be the master of ceremonies and keep things hopping with music and announcements.
