Roan Mountain State Park will have its annual Easter Egg Hunt Saturday, April 12, for children ages 10 and under.
The hunt will begin at noon at the park amphitheater. Egg hunters will need to bring their own baskets.

Volunteers are needed to help hide the 3,000 eggs and are asked to meet at the park amphitheater at 10 a.m. Parking is available at the park conference center or at the park swimming pool.

In conjunction with the egg hunt, Dollar General is sponsoring “Autism Speaks Day,” and will have food, crafts and games available.

Sunday, April 13, Franklin Woods Community Hospital and Wellness Center in Johnson City will sponsor its annual Easter Egg Hunt at 2:30 p.m. on the grounds between the two facilities, otherwise known as “the boulders.”

The event is free and open to the public, with hunts for three age groups: 0 to 3; ages 4 and 5; and ages 6 to 10. Parents must accompany their children.

Egg hunters will receive a prize when they turn in their eggs. Golden Egg finders will win a special prize.

The event will happen rain or shine. For more information about the egg hunt, call 302-1120.
