12/21/2023 The second annual Flashlight Egg Hunt will be held on Friday, April 5, 2024 at the Altoona Curve - Peoples Natural Gas Field in Altoona, PA.
The Flashlight Egg Hunt welcomes adults 18 years of age and older to don a headlamp, grab a bag or strap on a backpack, and scurry to gather as many eggs as possible in the dark. Once the lights are turned back on, participants can open their eggs to reveal candy or a slip of paper corresponding to a special prize.
Participants should come prepared with a headlamp/other light and bag or backpack to hold their eggs.
Before the Egg Hunt gets started, enjoy live music from Matt Pletcher and delicious food and drinks available for purchase from Belly Busters, Funnel Cake Kings, Coffee Coop, and Altoona Curve concessions. Must be 21 to buy alcoholic beverages. The Egg Hunt will begin at approximately 8:30 p.m. when it's dark.
All funds raised at the Flashlight Egg Hunt will benefit the Healing Patch Children’s Grief Program
. The Healing Patch began in 2006 as a free peer support program for children and their families who have suffered the death of a loved one. Since that time, the program has expanded to support children through in-school services, grief resources, and other community services. Sharing memories and experiences allows grieving children and families to discover that what they are going through is normal and that hope and healing are possible. The Healing Patch is a FREE service to the community and relies on individual and community donations, grants and fundraising events for support.
