Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt raises funds for Arlington Relay March 31

ARLINGTON — Arlington’s second annual Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt will wrap up “Paint the Town Purple Day” on March 23 in the Haller Middle School stadium, with the gates opening at 8 p.m.

At 8:30 p.m., attendees 5 years old and younger will be released onto the field, and at 9 p.m., the lights will go out for all ages, come rain or shine, at a cost of $5 per person, with all the money raised going toward the American Cancer Society.

“The pre-hunt for ages 5 and under this year was added by popular demand,” said Heidi Clark, who organized last year’s Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt. “The main hunt will be open to ages 3 to 103. Teenagers and adults are encouraged to attend.”

While hundreds of plastic Easter eggs will be filled with candy, some eggs will contain raffle tickets for cash prizes, gift cards donated by local businesses, vacation packages and more, with some of them valued at $500 or more.

Attendees should bring their own baskets and flashlights. For more information, call Clark at 360-925-6436.
