Where to hunt for Easter eggs, see the Easter Bunny in Ottawa County

Spring is just around the corner, and with it Easter, and in the coming weeks, communities will be organizing egg hunts for children.

Thousands of eggs filled with treats and prizes await eager children at events across Ottawa County.

Port Clinton

Children ages one and older are invited to join the City of Port Clinton for a hunt for approximately 5,000 colorful eggs on Saturday at 10 a.m. at Lakeview Park, 1100 W. Perry St.

It will take a team of volunteers to fill the 5,000 eggs, using funds donated by organizations such as the Port Clinton Women’s Club, the VFW, Elks and Eagles.

Eggs contain candy or tickets for more than 40 prizes, such as books, wooden puzzles, stuffed animals, Play-Doh, bubble pin wheels, archery sets with suction cups, and gift certificates from Friendship, Bassett’s Markets, Watering Hole at Monsoon Lagoon, Fast Eddie’s, Star Lanes at the bowling alley Harbor and McDonalds.

Sandye Ostheimer, administrative assistant to Mayor Mike Snider, said they will start at 10 a.m. and the eggs will go quickly.

“It goes very quickly,” says Ostheimer, who has been organizing the event for nine years. “It’s a great time for everyone.”

There are age categories for children from 1 to 3, 4 to 6 and 7 years and older, which are divided into sections in the park and distributed according to time.

This gives adults with multiple children the chance to watch each of them.

The Easter Bunny will also arrive on a fire truck from Port Clinton, accompanied by ambulances from city services, Ostheimer said.

Need more eggs?

Just outside the city, there will be another egg hunt at the new Hopfinger Zimmerman Memorial Park on Saturday at noon.

Children aged 12 and under can search for 5,000 eggs.

Hopfinger Zimmerman Memorial Park, a new 80-acre park in Bay Township, is located at 4909 W. Oak Harbor SE Road.
