Free open house, Easter egg hunt Saturday at Pomona State Park

VASSAR-Although Easter is a few weeks away, area kids will be able to attend their first Easter egg hunt of the season at Pomona State Park this weekend.

The park is hosting its annual open house 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 9, with free entrance to everyone. In addition to the Easter egg hunt, which begins at 1 p.m. in the Waucondah day use area, a variety of other activities are planned. Last year, more than 300 children participated in the Easter egg hunt. Egg hunters are asked to bring their own baskets.

There will also be all-day activities for adults: Planned are tours of the park’s cabins and shelters, a recreational vehicle show sponsored by Olathe Ford RV Center, scavenger hunt, door prize giveaways, and boating and safety demonstrations, along with a personal watercraft simulator. The disc golf course will be open, as will the Lighthouse Bay Marina. Food vendors, including Barkin’ Dawgs BBQ and Saucy Lady BBQ, and other vendors will be at the park, so families can plan to spend the day there having fun.

The event is being held in conjunction with the statewide open house and free entry at all state parks.

For more information, contact the park office at 785-828-4933 or visit the park’s news web page. The park is located at 22900 S. Highway 368, near Vassar.
