Egg Splash

Saturday, April 4

Join us at the Owatonna Middle School for Owatonna Parks and Recreation’s floating egg hunt! Bring your own basket or bag and collect as many eggs as you can while swimming in a sea of eggs. Once you have collected all of your eggs and turned them in for a prize you can use the rest of your time for open swim with all of the eggs! Parents are encouraged to accompany their children in the pool. Lifejackets are welcome as long as a parent is in the water and within arm’s reach of their child. We will have 10 bonus eggs, find an egg with a number on it and receive a bonus prize! Bonus prizes include: RSWP Daily Passes, RSWP Punch Cards, RSWP Season Passes, WHTF Open Swim Passes, Swimming Lessons Sessions and Lake Kohlmier Equipment Rentals.
