Adult Easter Egg Hunt In Foxburg A Sweet Success

Foxburg's First Annual Adult Easter Egg Hunt

It was a beautiful spring afternoon and almost 200 adult egg hunters converged on Foxburg Saturday April 19 for its first annual adult Easter egg hunt. The hunt sponsored by the Foxburg businesses to celebrate the spring season and support the Foxburg Library drew people from as far as Pittsburgh and suburbs such as Wilmerding as well as places in Ohio. Hundreds of eggs were hidden in various locations containing redeemable coupons, small prizes and or raffle tickets for a grand prize basket of wine, gift cards, Foxburg mementos and of course chocolate including an appropriate sweet rabbit.
Eager eggers arrived early and were seen nonchalantly strolling through town doing reconnaissance scoping out location and targets. Participants were asked to make a donation to the Foxburg Library upon registering and the library collected over $300. Senior citizens over 70 years old were given a head start. Accompanying children were asked to provide only hints and cheer the adults on. Literally minutes after 3 PM with the seniors off and “running” it was 200 scatter as the eggers fanned out through town to improv live jazz music from the library steps. 
The grand prize winner was Ms. Stephanie Stitt who now works in the Pittsburgh and resides in Clairton, PA down river from Pittsburgh. Stephanie was visiting her parents who live in Parker for Easter. She said, “A girlfriend suggested they head up to Foxburg and join the adult egg hunt for some fun and a way to enjoy such a beautiful afternoon.” Stephanie was very happy she did and like many others looks forward to next year’s event.
