Eggcellent times found here

Scrambling to find a SimplyGrand holiday happening for the little ones? Look no further than the SCHEELS Easter Egg Scramble.

On April 20, wrangle up the whole gang and head to the Alerus Center for one fun-filled day. In its 17th year, 2019’s Scramble promises to be bigger and better than ever!

During the FREE Easter Egg Hunt, kids will have a blast snatching up prize-filled plastic eggs scattered across the arena floor, while parents enthusiastically cheer ‘em on. The day kicks off at 8 a.m., with tots ages 2 to 3 taking their crack at it first. Then around 9:30 a.m., the 4 to 5-year olds get a turn, followed by ages 6 to 8 at 10:30 a.m. Due to this event’s huge popularity, it is recommended participants arrive 15 minutes prior to their scheduled hunt time.

As this year’s premier sponsor, SCHEELS is providing yard games and a coloring contest, along with samples of their famous fudge and Dots Pretzels. For children of all ages, there’ll also be a special Cities FM Fun Zone serving up breakfast and offering access to inflatable games, a cupcake walk, cookie decorating, photo booth, face painting and more. Admission to the Fun Zone is $5 for kids and adults at the door (free for ages 2 and under). Best of all, the illustrious Easter Bunny will be hopping around all day and available for your picture-taking pleasure!
