After a two-year pause, one of the community’s largest spring events is set to return this month.
The Waxahachie Egg Hunt is set for 10 a.m. April 16 at Getzendaner Park in Waxahachie.
The Waxahachie Egg Hunt is hosted by Mission 75165, a nonprofit organization of local churches that hosts various community events throughout the year.
It will be the first time the hunt has taken place since before the COVID-19 pandemic. And even before that it had taken place at separate elementary school campuses.
“But after the pandemic we really wanted to bring everybody back together,” said John Bates, lead pastor at Freedom Fellowship.
During the pandemic the organization attempted a safe, albeit much-scaled-down, version of the hunt.
“Now we’re back in person, and we’re looking for a great time,” said Kristi Slate, director of Mission 75165.
