Bring your family to Easter egg hunt

This will be my 21st year putting on the Easter Egg Hunt at Duncan Park. This year we are celebrating the 56th year for this great community event. It continues to be the most popular event of the year for many miles. Jena, St. Joe, Winnsboro, Clayton, Harrisonburg, Monterey and many more towns in Louisiana. In Mississippi, there’s Bude, Vicksburg, Port Gibson, Fayette, Sibley, Doloroso, Meadville, Woodville, McCall Creek, Crosby and many, many more. After cutting back on the age limit, the egg hunt went very smooth with no incidents at all. I took over the egg hunt 21 years ago from Jim & Diana Nutter of WTYJ/WMIS Radio and have enjoyed watching it grow into the biggest and best Easter egg hunt for many miles around. There will be thousands of eggs, prizes, bicycles & much more for everyone. And it’s free to all kids ages 1 through 7.

Special thanks to Wilbert Whitley and The Natchez Recreation Department, Clark Feiser and the Natchez Retiree Partnership. Thanks again to many area businesses such as WTYJ/WMIS Radio, Gary Small and McDonald’s of Natchez and Vidalia, Mary Flash of Belk and many others too numerous to mention. This event would not be the huge success that it is today without the many merchants’ generous support and it’s greatly appreciated.

“Jelly Bean”, our official mascot, will be on hand to pass out candy and prizes to the kids. In a day and time when family events are few and far between, I take pride in being able to continue this event for the families of the Miss-Lou.

So at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 30, grab your Easter Baskets and bring your family to Duncan Park for the 56th annual Miss-Lou Egg Hunt.

Bob Ewing is a resident of Natchez and owner of Dallas Productions who sponsors this event.
