Easter is no longer the only time of the year when we send the kids out to hunt for edibles. Let Christmas join the fray!

Move over hidden Easter eggs! Here come the concealed candy canes!

That's right. The Dugan Best Recreation Center is hosting its annual Candy Cane Hunt for kids under the age of 18.

The Hunt takes place at the Dugan Best Park on Monday, December 17th at 4PM.

Dress accordingly and come prepared to have a blast! It's not a bad idea to come prepared to enjoy some hot chocolate and cookies, too.

Certainly, the Candy Cane Hunt will be tons of fun, but you'll also have a chance to win a prize.

And, hey, hiding candy canes is WAY easier on your nose than hiding Easter eggs.

Let me explain.

When I was a little kid, I was so good at hiding Easter eggs, that we couldn't find one of them. Additionally, I couldn't remember where I hid it...until it started to go bad.

(It was in the piano bench.)

THAT dilemma will not present itself on December 17th at Dugan Best.

Candy canes are much easier on the old sniffer.
