One bunny, dozens of volunteers, hundreds of children, and thousands of eggs can all be found at the upcoming Easter Egg Hunt at the Michigan State Capitol.

The annual Lansing Jaycees Easter Egg Hunt will take place March 31 from 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. on the east lawn of the state Capitol building, located at 100 N. Capitol Ave., Lansing, MI, 48933. The event is free and open to the public.

“The Lansing Jaycees have been doing Easter Eggs Hunts in the community for over fifty years,” said Illona Castelein, Lansing Jaycees President. “We are thrilled to be able to keep this multi-generational Lansing tradition alive.”

There will be three separate hunts that typically last no more than two minutes each; one for ages 7 and up, one for ages 4 to 6, and a final one for ages 0 to 3. Participants should arrive no later than 10:30 A.M so not to miss out on the fun. We ask that parents refrain from entering the 7 and up hunt area.

There will be many activities for families to participate in throughout the course of the event. There will be photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny and other mascots, face painting, crafts, a live DJ, and more.

Raffle tickets will be sold at the event for a host of great prizes. Tickets will be called after the final hunt and holders must be present to win. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit future egg hunts, helping to keep the event free for the community.

This community event is organized and hosted by the Lansing Jaycees and made possible by the Robert Dowding Group and numerous other community sponsors. For more information on the Easter Egg Hunt, find the Lansing Jaycees on Facebook, or visit:
