The Ascension Parish Recreation Department will host The Easter Egg Hunt at Lamar-Dixon on Saturday, April 23 from 2 p.m. till 4 p.m.

The event is for children from ages 2 to 6. Families are encouraged to bring their own Easter Baskets to collect the eggs. Prizes will be given for the golden and silver eggs, and for the largest number of eggs collected.

Parish President Tommy Martinez will be on hand to give out prizes.

“We’re really excited to be holding this event for the children,” President Martinez said.  “Our recreation department did a great job in finding another way for Ascension families to come out and see what a beautiful facility Lamar-Dixon is while having family fun too.”

Lamar-Dixon Expo Center is located at 9039 St. Landry Road in Gonzales. The Easter Egg Hunt will take place in the large field south of the gym, Trade Mart Building and 4-H Building.
