“This is such a great time of year for people to get out and enjoy the weather. Last year, with chilly temperatures and a bright sun, more than 1,000 people attended the celebration! We have a lot of fun planned for this year as well!”

Auburn Hills Mayor Kevin McDaniel said this is a wonderful spring event and a family favorite!

“This annual event has become such a wonderful tradition for the community and it’s so great to see all the families that come out to enjoy it! After 27 years of bringing Auburn Hills’ families out to celebrate spring festivities, it just keeps getting better.”

In addition to the egg hunt beginning at noon, there is a bonnet contest featuring categories for kids and adults. Visitors can also enjoy photos with the Easter bunny and an adult egg toss at 1:00 p.m.
