VERO BEACH — The City of Vero Beach Recreation Department and Mulligan’s Beach House held the 55th Annual Easter Egg Hunt Saturday, officially kicking off the Easter Egg hunting season.
The next government-sponsored egg hunt will be Monday, April 14, at the North County Aquatic Center starting at 6:30 p.m.
The Indian River County Recreation Department is hosting three hunts, beginning with the Water Egg Hunt at the pool for children ages infant to 8.
The children’s swim area at the North County pool will be covered in plastic Easter Eggs that float on the surface for the kids to “scoop up.”
