The award winning Candy Cane Hunt brought to you by Paducah Parks & Recreation, the Yeiser Art Center, and The Carson Center will be held Saturday December 7 on the front lawn of The Carson Center. The entire event is FREE! Children ages 10 and under will race to find as many candy canes as they can and take part in a Yeiser Art Center coloring contest. Registration for the event begins at 12:00pm. Kids will receive a gift bag at registration while supplies last.
The children will be divided into different age groups as they race to collect the more than 3,000 candy canes. There will be three hunts for different age groups: 3 and under at 12:45 p.m., 4 to 6 at 1:00 p.m., and 7 to 10 at 1:15 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for finding special candy canes. This year's candy canes and prizes are provided by Banterra.
Kids can also take part in the Yeiser Art Center coloring contest anytime from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. They can color their sheet on site and turn it in before leaving or turn it in to the Yeiser Art Center before 5:00 p.m. that day. Winners will be announced after that date and prizes will be given out to winners for the age groups of 0-3, 4-6, and 7-10.
