A Different Kind of Kegs and Eggs

Billed as “Childhood Fun for those Over 21,” it’s the 3rd Annual Charity Grown-Up Easter Egg Hunt in Troy’s Prospect Park on Saturday, April 26. More than 3,000 colorful eggs will be filled with gift cards, candy, and alcohol vouchers.

About 150 businesses have donated items and gift certificates – from local craft beer to mini liquor bottles, to be redeemed at a private party to follow. The cost is $15 and proceeds go toward the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America and the Col. Albert Pawling Memorial Statue Project, Troy’s First Mayor. They plan to erect that statue by the summer of 2016.

WHERE: Troy’s Prospect Park, located off Congress Street (Rain location: Troy Atrium)
WHEN: Saturday, April 26 – Doors open at 2:30pm and the Hunt starts at 3:30pm
The Capital District Grown Up Egg Hunt was started in 2012 to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It has since grown to support new, preferably little-known, charities annually.
Participants pay $15 which includes entry into the egg hunt, a free raffle ticket, and food while it lasts.

Some 200 people attended the event last year and we’re expecting an even larger crowd this year.
