Egg-stra spring fun

. February 28, 2013.

Eggs and trains and goodies — oh my! Two area egg events will be bring out the Easter scavenger in children this month, both on Saturday, March 30. At Fremont’s Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center, children can re-enact a White House tradition the then-president started more than 150 years ago by rolling their own decorated hard-boiled eggs down the slopes of the Hayes center. Or, visit the Northwest Ohio Railroad Preservation (NWORRP) of Findlay, where kids ages 1 to 12 can participate in an annual hunt at 10:30 am. Bring a bag or container and collect your share of over 1,000 plastic eggs, then swap them for a bag of goodies. (More than 400 guests attended last year, so arrive early.) Hayes Presidential Center: Free (but children expected to bring three colored, hard-boiled eggs). 2-3:30pm. The Hayes Presidential Center, Spiegel Grove, Fremont. NWORRP: $2 adults, $1 children, includes a train ticket. 11600 County Rd. 99 just outside of Findlay, 1-75 exit 161. 419-423-2995.
