Slated for Saturday, March 31 in Ruth Hardy Park

More than 3,000 strategically hidden eggs and a special visit from the Easter Bunny on a fire engine will kick off the annual Palm Springs Firemen’s Association Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 31.

The 9 a.m. hunt at Ruth Hardy Park has been a beloved tradition in Palm Springs for more than 40 years and is open to children between the ages of 2 – 9-years-old. Last year more than 400 children frolicked in the park looking for colorful eggs. In addition, the Easter Bunny will be on hand to take photos with youngsters and deliver special gifts.

Immediately following the event, there will be a pancake breakfast in the park. The price is just $5 per person for a stack of delicious pancakes prepared by Palm Springs firefighters.

“The Palm Springs Firemen’s Association Annual Easter Egg Hunt is a much loved tradition in our city that is open to all families in the Coachella Valley,” said Fire Chief Kevin Nalder. “I invite everyone to bring your camera and celebrate the joy of the Easter holiday in the City of Palm Springs, like no place else
