Greenville, Texas -- For all you adults out there do you remember when you used to have fun hunting eggs at Easter when you were kids?  Well, now is your chance to experience again the excitement of an Easter egg hunt, only this time at dusk and with the opportunity to receive some great prizes.  Easter After Dark will start at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12 at the Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum in Greenville, Texas.

There are all sorts of prizes in store for everyone who participates!  Prizes will range from candy, automotive supplies, restaurant gift cards and gift certificates all the way up to tickets to the Texas Motor Speedway Nascar race in November, admission tickets to a number of museums in Dallas and Fort Worth and small and large cash prizes, including one egg with $75!  These are just some of the prizes we are gathering to fill those 700 eggs for everyone to find!

As a nod to those of the older generation (65 and older), for the first ten minutes after the starting gun goes off they will hunt on one side of the field and the younger generation will hunt on the other side.  Turn an evening of fun into a weekend getaway by spending the night after the event at a local hotel or bed and breakfast.  Treat yourself as you explore all of the neat prizes you just won! 

Tickets to the event cost $10 if purchased in advance or you are a member of the Museum and $12 the day of the event.  There are a limited number of tickets so people are encouraged to buy them ahead of time.  You must be at least 18 years old to participate.  Rain out date will be April 13. 

Contact the Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum at (903) 450-4502 to purchase tickets or for additional information. 

The Museum is located at 600 I-30 East right down the street from Collin Street Bakery in Greenville, Texas.  Funding for this event is provided in part by the City of Greenville Hotel/Motel Occupancy Tax Revenues.
