Recreation & Parks Department holds first town-wide ‘virtual’ Easter Egg Hunt

BRATTLEBORO — Due to COVID-19, the Recreation & Parks Department has had to cancel their annual Easter Egg Hunt at Living Memorial Park.

Instead, Recreation & Parks announces that through April 12, they will be hosting their first-ever Town Wide Easter Egg Hunt.

“We are excited to announce that we will be looking to everyone in town to help us decorate the community and display eggs for everyone to see,” the department said in a news release.

Here's how to participate:

• Go the Easter Egg coloring pages on, visit the “Brattleboro Recreation and Parks Department” Facebook page, or their Instagram page at “brattleboro_recandparks” and download a page to color.

• Once the Easter Eggs are colored, tape them on your windows, doors, fences, trees, and more. Remember: They must be visible from the street.

• Organizers encourage households to go outside and walk or drive around their neighborhoods and see how many eggs they can discover. Can't go outside? Not a problem, just print, decorate, and hide the eggs inside your house for family members to find.

• Finally, everyone who shares their pictures on Facebook or Instagram will be entered to win a prize. One lucky person will win a 10-session punch pass to the Living Memorial Park Swimming Pool or Nelson Withington Skating Facility. The drawing will be held Monday, April 13.

“During these unknown and difficult times, we want to encourage everyone to participate,” the department wrote. “From decorating the eggs to searching for the eggs as you take an afternoon stroll or drive, we want everyone to participate as well as stay safe and healthy while maintaining social distancing.”
