Birkdale Village will host an Easter Egg Hunt Extravaganza from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Radio Disney will start the event with fun and games. Kids will be divided into three age groups to hunt for 1,500 eggs hidden in the green median. There will be one golden egg in each age group. The child who finds it wins a $100 Birkdale Village gift card.
The Easter bunny will be available for photos from noon to 6 p.m. today through Saturday. The grand prize winner of Birkdale Village's 2010 Kids with Heart contest will be announced after the hunt.
Kids with Heart is designed to honor 10 children in the Lake Norman area who have made a difference in someone's life, and who have set a higher standard for both kids and adults through selfless acts. Individuals or companies can nominate kids 18 or younger who they believe deserve to be recognized. The search began Feb.14 and will end Saturday.
Nomination forms are at Birkdale Village shops and online at www.kidswithheartcontest.com. Submissions should include a photo of the nominee.
