The City of Muscatine and the Parks and Recreation Department invites the community to come down to the riverfront Friday, December 2, and join in on some deliciously good fun with the annual Candy Cane Hunt.

Hunters and spectators are asked to gather outside of the Pearl City Station in Riverside Park with the hunt beginning at 6:00 p.m. Areas for the hunt will be set up in the green space near the basketball courts for two age groups including pre-kindergarten through first grade and second through fourth grade girls and boys.

Children will sweep through the designated areas gathering up the sweet treats that they will be able to keep. The young hunters will receive a prize for each candy cane found. “Special” candy canes will be sprinkled around that can be redeemed at Pearl City Station for a special toy.

The Candy Cane Hunt will be held in the dark, so bring a flashlight if you wish. LED flashlights will be available from our sponsors if you do not have one.

Please contact the Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department at (563) 263-0241 for more information.
