Rain or shine, many Knoxville children will be spending part of their Saturday hunting for eggs. The annual Knoxville Community Easter Egg hunt is Saturday afternoon at 1pm at the corners of Lincoln and Madison Streets. Knoxville Noon Kiwanis Club member Jamie Hughes says that they have now stuffed close to 11,000 of the colorful eggs for children to collect.

Children up to the age of 12 are allowed to participate, and the grassy field will be divided into sections based on age to protect the younger children. Hughes says they’ll let KNIA/KRLS know of any delay information, but plan to start at 1pm unless there is significant rain.

She asks that those who are attending use the high school, hospital, and side streets for parking.
