Encouraging signs of a return to normal have been popping up around Flint and surrounding areas over the last several months. One of the most encouraging is the return of traditional events and new event pop-ups. This week, it’s the announcement of the Downtown Flint Easter Egg Hunt, taking place at the Riverbank Park (Amphitheatre) in Downtown Flint on Saturday, April 3 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The event is the brainchild of Flint photographer and Eye Snap Studio founder Alvin J. Brown, Jr. and Sprout Worldwide founder Aiesha Lewis, who wanted to usher in a new tradition during this important season of renewal.
The two principals are joining forces with The What’s Up Downtown Project to create a family-friendly event that they hope will become an annual tradition.
Everyone is welcome to attend this free outdoor event, which features activities like make-n-take custom Easter bags, a traditional Easter Egg Hunt and an opportunity to meet the Easter bunny himself. There will also be a variety of safely distanced games and activities.
Families will also be able to take advantage of Eye Snap Studios outdoor portrait studio, which will offer free family portrait sittings complete with take-away prints.
Although the event is free and open to the public, registration is required for the three egg hunts, which will occur at 11 a.m., Noon, and 1 p.m.
Free parking will be available in the flat lot adjacent to the Amphitheater. Masks are mandatory, according to the organizers, who will be adhering to recommended social distancing protocols.
