Recreation This Week - April 11, 2019

Good Afternoon,

Mammoth families celebrate spring break this upcoming week! Wishing all our locals safe travels if you’re headed out of town. If you are staying in the area check out some of the fun recreation activities available this next week below…

Come celebrate Easter with the Mammoth Parks and Recreation at our annual Easter Egg Hunt. The hunt will take place at Mammoth Creek Park on Friday, April 19 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. This annual event is fun for the whole family with three different hunting grounds for kiddos of all ages. We have added six more golden eggs this year (three golden eggs per age group) and 4,000 eggs. Get there early to make a guess on the jellybean jar and stake out your spot on our start line. The hunt will begin promptly at 3:15p.m. Remember to bring a bag for all your goodies!
