The Oklahoma City Parks Department will host the second annual Egg Hunt 5K on Saturday at Stars & Stripes Park, 3701 S Lake Hefner Drive.

The family-friendly event will include activities by age group, including an egg hunt, a visit from the Easter Bunny and an officially timed 5K.

The event will kick off at 9:15 a.m. with the Kids Bunny Hop for ages 6-12. Kids can enjoy the half-mile fun run with the opportunity to hunt for eggs with goodies inside along the route while getting exercise.

The Tiny Tot Egg Hunt for ages 0 to 5 will begin at 9:30 a.m., and families should have cameras at the ready for a visit from a special guest. Bring baskets for little ones to collect eggs during this traditional egg hunt.

A 5K will begin at 10 a.m. and will also feature eggs to find along the course. Each egg will be filled with candy, trinkets or other larger prizes from event sponsors. Walkers, wheelchairs and strollers are welcome. Participants are asked to only bring service animals.

The 5K registration fee is $35 if registering by Friday at okc.gov/parksignup. Registration will include a timing chip, bib, finisher medal and race socks. If registering after Friday or the day of the race, the fee is $40.

Prizes will be awarded to the top overall male and female finishers for both official and unofficial times, plus age group awards. The age groups are 18 and younger, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and older. The awards ceremony will immediately follow the race.

Race packet pickup will be noon to 7 p.m. Friday at the OK Runner’s Automobile Alley location, 708 N Broadway Ave.
