MOODY — Springtime is blooming in Coryell County, providing an ideal backdrop for the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Mother Neff State Park on Saturday.

The event, sponsored by the Mother Neff State Park Association, offers an array of activities, Park Superintendent Leah Huth said.

Starting at 10 a.m., children 12 and younger can have their faces painted and make an Easter hat.

The egg hunt, which starts at the Rock Tabernacle, will be divided into three age groups: 4 and younger, 5 to 8, and 9 to 12.

Susie Wingo will demonstrate how to blow out an egg and use the shell for decorating.

“Blowing out an egg shell allows you to clean, dye and decorate the egg without having to worry about the egg rotting,” Huth said.

Children younger than 12 will be admitted free. The $2 park entrance fee applies to anyone 13 and older.

To volunteer to help with the hunt, call 254-853-2389.
