In addition to hunting for nearly 5,000 candy canes hidden throughout the park, children will have the opportunity to enjoy other seasonal activities such as arts & crafts, holiday music, visits with Santa, and drawings for stockings filled with toys & candy.

New to the event this year, the Parks & Recreation Department is partnering with Toys for Tots to help collect toys for children in our community that are in need. Participants are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to donate. For each toy donated, a family will receive three additional entries for giveaway drawings.

Registration will be offered on-site from noon – 12:30 p.m., and is required for the candy cane hunt and giveaways.
