The Annual Easter Egg Hunt is held the Saturday before Easter Sunday. The River Valley Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Mexico Fire Department fill 220 baskets for kids ages 2-12. The goodies for the baskets are provided by area businesses with $10 donation. All are welcome to contribute to this wonderful event.
Volunteers hide eggs throughout the towns of Byron, Canton, Carthage, Dixfield, Hanover, Mexico, Roxbury, Rumford and Peru for the 7-12 age group. The volunteers hide the other half of the eggs behind the Mexico Fire Station for the 2-6 year olds. The brigades are stuffed full of parents and children waiting to find their prize. At 9am sharp, the fire whistle is blown and children, parents and grandparents are all over the place.
We encourage you to participate in either volunteering for this event or sponsoring a basket for $10. We are very thankful for all our volunteers and sponsors ~ they are the ones that make this event a success!
