It’s that time of year—time to go egg hunting!

The springtime festivities start tonight with two teens-only free Flashlight Egg Hunts at Jefferson and Van Asselt Community Centers. Bring your own flashlight and goodie bag to hunt for prize eggs that contain candy and games. The hunts are rain-or-shine, so dress appropriately if it rains.

The event at Jefferson starts at 8 p.m., and is open to ages 11-17. The event at Van Asselt starts slightly earlier, at 7:45, and is open to ages 12-17. (If you are going to the Van Asselt Flashlight hunt, meet on the Van Asselt Playground, 7200 Beacon Ave. S.)

Tomorrow, everyone is invited to Jefferson Community Center for the Spring Egg Hunt and Pancake Social, from 9 a.m. until noon. Children 10 and under should bring a basket or a bag to collect treats at the egg hunt. Pancakes are available for all ages before the egg hunt, so be there early. The egg hunt is free. The cost for pancakes is $3, pancakes and sausage are $4, and the whole shebang—pancakes, sausage, and eggs—is $5.

Jefferson Community Center is located at 3801 Beacon Ave. S.
