The annual Candy Cane Hunt brought to you by Paducah Parks & Recreation and the Yeiser Art Center will be held Saturday, December 1, 2018 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 will be provided by Banterra Bank.
Kids can also take part in the Yeiser Art Center coloring contest anytime from 12:00 - 2:00pm. They can color their sheet on site or take it home and drop it back off at the Yeiser before Thursday December 6. 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.
