CANCELLED – 21st Annual Children’s Easter Hunt @ Cannon Falls City Parking Lot
Apr 11 @ 10:00 am

CANCELLED due to the Coronavirus!  The Cannon Falls Area Chamber of Commerce invites you to our 21st Annual Children’s Easter Hunt on Saturday, April 11th, at 10:00 am in the Cannon Falls City Parking Lot behind Cannon Valley Specialties.  The Easter Bunny will be there for sure.  Remember, he arrived in a Fire Truck last year!  There will also be fun events to participate in around the City Parking Lot.

Area Chamber Members who are participating in this event will have the numbers for their candy bags listed on their front windows or doors.  A business map will also be available for each family at check in.  The Easter Hunt Numbers will be color-coded on the posters, the business map, and the numbers themselves.  We hope this helps make the hunt a little easier.

We are asking that participants be 10 years old or younger.  Children should be accompanied by an adult during this event for safety purposes.

This event is supporting the Cannon Falls Food Shelf, so we ask that everyone bring a non-perishable food item or cash donation for this organization.

Stay tuned to the Chamber’s webpage at www.cannonfalls.org FaceBook page at https://www.facebook.com/cannonfalls.chamber/  and Instagram at
