Virtual Easter egg hunt

Easter is a time for families to gather in celebration. With COVID-19 social distancing guidelines in place, we are all experiencing changes with the upcoming holiday. Heritage Park of North Iowa usually hosts an Easter egg hunt with tons of candy, drawing several hundred children in the area. That event has been cancelled this year. In an effort to provide an Easter egg hunt activity for local children, the Forest City Chamber of Commerce and the Forest City YMCA have partnered to host a virtual Easter egg hunt.

Youth between ages of 5 and 14 are invited to go to the YMCA web link at

The hunt begins today, April 7th and continues through 9pm Easter Sunday. To begin the hunt, select the appropriate age group then download or print the game sheets. Each age group offers fun and challenging games to solve. Solving the challenges will lead you to eggs which uncover the secret messages from the Easter bunny!  

All correct submissions will receive Forest City Bucks (one award per person). Amount is determined by the number of entries. There is $1600 in sponsorship money that will be divided evenly.  Special thanks to Courtney and Shannon Wooge, Randy and Tracy Broesder, Forest City Famers Coop Association, and several others for contributing to the Easter Egg Hunt.
