20th Annual Children’s Easter Hunt – April 20th @ Cannon Falls City Parking Lot
Apr 20 @ 10:00 am

The Cannon Falls Area Chamber of Commerce invites you to our 20th Annual Children’s Easter Hunt on Saturday, April 20th, at 10:00 am in the Cannon Falls City Parking Lot behind Cannon Valley Specialties.

Area Chamber Business 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.
