Dive into spring as the City of Issaquah Parks & Recreation Department hosts its popular Underwater Egg Hunt on March 22, 2013.
Space is still available for children, tweens and teenagers to participate in the springtime tradition. The event is open to children up to age 16.
In the Underwater Egg Hunt, the outdoor tradition takes on a different and fun form in the shallow end of Julius Boehm Pool.
Call 425-837-3350 to register for the event. The cost is $6 for a child and $4 for an adult to assist children younger 6. Participants should bring a swimsuit, towel and plastic basket.
Participants search for eggs in three heats divided by age group. Heat 1, for participants ages 5 and younger, will be at 6:45 p.m. Heat 2, for participants ages 6 to 9, will be at 7:30 p.m. Heat 3, for participants ages 10 to 16, will be at 8 p.m.
Participants are awarded prizes for the number of eggs gathered. Upstairs, in the balcony area above the pool, revelers can join in carnival games.
Meanwhile, a public swim will be available from 6:30-9 p.m. for regular drop-in fees.
