Stillwater, Bayport & Lake Elmo Community Easter Events are April 4

The Stillwater Knights of Columbus are bringing back the Easter in the Park event at Washington Square.

The community Easter event is happening from noon to 2 p.m., Saturday, April 4.

In past years, the event had become one of the largest Easter events in the area, but due to snow it was cancelled one year — and the event was canceled because of a lack of funds and volunteers the following year.

This year’s event will have nine areas of age-appropriate games, a three-legged race, an egg roll, crafts, music, prizes, crafts and an opportunity to meet the Easter Bunny, Event Coordinator Bev Diemler said. Prizes will be given to every child who participates in the games and activities.

The event will not include a candy hunt as has been done in year’s past; however, Diemer said there will be candy and great prizes for the raffle drawing, including a bicycle and fishing poles.

If you’d like to donate or volunteer for the event, contact Tom Thul at

Bayport Easter Egg Hunt

The Bayport Easter Egg Hunt begins promptly at 10 a.m., Saturday, April 4 at Barker’s Alps Park.

Bayport’s annual Easter Egg Hunt is organized by the Bayport Community Action League, and is geared toward elementary school aged children, who hunt for prizes throughout Barker’s Alps Park. The event will be held rain, snow, or shine.

Lake Elmo Jaycees Easter Egg Hunt

The Lake Elmo Jaycees are also hosting their annual Easter Egg Hunt and Egg Coloring Event at noon on Saturday, April 4 at the playground area at Lions Park.

Plastic eggs will be filled with candy and some will have special tickets (to redeem immediately following hunt for prizes). The Jaycees suggest participants arrive at least 5-10 minutes early.The hunt starts with the sound of the Noon fire station siren.

After the hunt, you can head over to the Lake Elmo Fire Hall to dye and color hard-boiled eggs to take home. The event will take place rain, snow or shine.

Adult Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt

The Jaycees are also hosting their fifth annual Adult Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 11 at Lions Park.

Leave the kids with a sitter, it’s time for the grown-ups to have some fun. Once its dark out, the hunt begins. Find hidden eggs with a treat or prize ticket inside. After all the eggs have been found, the Jaycees are hosting a party at Twin Points Tavern to open eggs, and hang out. Registration begins at 7:30 p.m.

The cost is $5 for Jaycee members and $10 for non-members. All funds will be donated to Valley Outreach Food Shelf.
