Milton brings "a day of Easter fun" to the city on April 13.

The "Community Egg Hunt" is a collaborative event with the city and Stonecreek Church. 

"Stonecreek has a heart for this city and community and we thought we could do more if we partnered with the city," said Stonecreek Church Kids Pastor Jordan Ledwell.

According to Milton Community Outreach and Engagement Manager Courtney Spriggs, "the city hosted an annual egg hunt at Friendship Park for several years."

The event was discontinued in 2017 due to "limited staffing and available volunteers for such a large community event."

With help from the church, "more than 300 volunteers are anticipated to help put this family-friendly event together."

"We knew that together, we could do something spectacular," said Ledwell.

"Stonecreek choosing the Community Egg Hunt as their City Serve volunteer event has been the catalyst for a lot of new connections, which is going to make this such a fun day," said Spriggs.

The hunt is intended to feature 30,000 colorful eggs spread across the football field at Cambridge High School.

There are also plans for "inflatables, face painting, music, and a visit from the Easter Bunny."

Easter egg hunt is intended for children up to fifth grade age.

Activities are planned to take place from 2 to 4 p.m.

The Community Egg Hunt is free and no sign up is necessary to participate or attend.

Parking will be available at Cambridge High School and Stonecreek Church.

The Facebook event page will be utilized for "day-of or weather-related updates."

"Organizations collaborating and working together is what makes events like this one possible," said Spriggs.
