Tri-Cities to host Easter egg hunt for blind, visually impaired children

The Arc of Tri-Cities is partnering with Edith Bishel Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired to host an Easter egg hunt on Saturday Apr. 15.

The event will take place at Columbia Point Park in Richland starting at 10:30 a.m. Participation is free.

Beeping Easter eggs will be used to help blind and visually impaired children find them. Blindfolds will be provided for siblings. Children with developmental disabilities are also invited.

Four different age groups will be participating.

The egg hunt is kicking off at 10:30 a.m. for ages 1 to 3. At 10:40 a.m. ages 4 to 7 will start. At 10:50 a.m. ages 8 to 12 will be invited to start hunting. At 11 a.m. ages 1 to 12 will all look for beeping eggs.

The event is free thanks to donations from Ben Franklin Transit employees, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Richland Police Bomb Squad and International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators.
