The City of Kalamazoo’s Parks and Recreation Department will host its 14th Annual Candy Cane Hunt on Saturday December 7 from 12:00pm to 2:00pm at Mayors’ Riverfront Park (251 Mills Street). Nearly 5,000 candy canes will be hidden around Homer Stryker Field for children to find.

The candy cane hunt will be divided up by age group starting with 4 years old and under at 12:30 pm, 5 and 6 years old at 12:55pm, and 7 and 8 years old at 1:20pm. Registration will occur at the entrance to the baseball field. There will be prizes for the first 75 participants per age group who register, as well as 10 large stockings and 3 grand prize winners per age group. Prize drawings will take place when each age group exits the field.

There will be a variety of holiday activities in addition to the candy cane hunt including visits with Santa, writing letters to Santa, arts & crafts, and prize drawings. Complimentary hot chocolate and coffee will also be available while supplies last.

Donations will also be accepted at the event for the Toys for Tots program. Participants are encouraged to bring unwrapped toys to be donated to children in need in West Michigan. All children that donate a toy to Toys for Tots will receive an additional 2 entries for the Santa Sack Drawing (limit of 1 prize per child).
