TROY — The Troy Historic Village is inviting families to their annual Village egg hunt 4-8 p.m. Friday, March 24, and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, March 25.

Children are invited to play both indoor and outdoor games and make a “bunny door” craft. They will get to collect eggs and trade them in at the bunny trading post for treats. Kids can test their skills with the ever-popular hop-stacle course and carrot toss.

“Activities are spread throughout the Village to create an egg’celent experience for the entire family … Families return to our Community Events year after year because they find it’s a full experience for kids” said Village Executive Director Jen Peters. “This isn’t a ‘dash and done’ egg hunt; you’ll spend about an hour with us as you travel around the Village finding eggs, crafts, treats, and games. We really work on making it the right fit for kids aged 2-6 but encourage all ages to join us!”

The Village Egg Hunt will be held rain or shine. The event features free on-site parking, as well as free overflow parking at Brookfield Academy down the street. For discounted event pricing, guests may purchase their admission by midnight on Thursday, March 23, at

The advance price is $7 for Troy Historical Society members and $9 for nonmembers. Tickets also will be available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis for $1 more than the advance prices. Children under 2 are admitted for free.

The Troy Historic Village is located at 60 W. Wattles Road and can be contacted by calling (248) 524-3570.
