2018 Beeping Easter Egg Hunt

Beeping Easter Egg Hunt

 

The eighth annual “Beeping Easter Egg Hunt for the Blind and Visually Impaired” will be held Saturday at Reynolda Village from 10 a.m. until noon.

The Easter eggs — specially-designed by the Winston-Salem Police Department — emit beeps to allow visually impaired children and adults to participate in a traditional Easter egg hunt.

The beeping Easter egg hunts were first held in 2011 and this year the police department’s Hazardous Devices Unit has made more than 1,100 beeping eggs for hunts around the country.

The police department will hold a second egg hunt for the visually-impaired April 7 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Governor Morehead School in Raleigh.

“We were able to watch adults as ‘young’ as 94-years-old enjoy their very first egg hunt and become a child again for a few hours,” a statement from the police department read. “These moments are the reason we do what we do.”
