Pre-registration for the Wettest Egg Hunt is required and can be completed online at www.cityofclarksville.com/wettestegghunt.

On Saturday, March 19th, thousands of colored eggs will be floating or sunk to the bottom of the pools, each egg redeemable for candy and prizes. An adaptive egg hunt will be offered for children and adults with special needs beginning at 10:00am with the remaining hunts for children ages 1 to 11 scheduled from 12:30pm to 3:00pm.

To help families as they plan to attend the Wettest Egg Hunts, the schedule of the day will be as follows:
