Hot “Dog”: Upcoming Knightdale Holiday Events Include a Day of Easter Fun

Knightdale Holiday Events

On Saturday, April 8…at the Station, the always fun, traditional Knightdale Holiday Events calendar moves into the Spring, bringing family members young and old, as well as the pets of the community together for a great time for all ages, this when Knightdale Station Park will play host to Paws in the Park and Easter Eggstraordinaire.

Hosted by the Knightdale Parks and Recreation Department, the Easter Eggstraordinaire has become an annual tradition among Knightdale Holiday events, that takes place on the Saturday prior to Good Friday each year. This fun filled day of Easter-themed activities for the kids will offer up egg hunts for three different groups, with the age ranges being from 0-3 years, 4-5 year olds, and also 6-8 year olds.

The egg hunts as part of the Knightdale NC Events this Saturday will take place in the beautiful grassy area near Knightdale Station Park Amphitheatre and signs will be up to help direct each age group to their respective areas. In addition to the egg hunt, there will also be an appearance by the Easter Bunny for photo ops as well as many other activities and music for the entire family to enjoy throughout the festivities. The Easter Eggstraordinaire will begin at 10:00 a.m., with the egg hunts starting at 11:00.

New to this years’ Easter-themed Knightdale Holiday Events will be an area that East Wake Community Church is hosting specifically for special needs children to enjoy the day, and serving up an entirely different type of “dog” than the ‘Paws in the Park’ event, Radiant Church will be on hand serving up 1,500 free hot dogs.

The children will not be the only members of the family enjoying the Knightdale Holiday Events this Saturday, as “Paws in the Park” will also be taking place, giving your pets a “day for the dogs.” “Paws in the Park” will kick off at 9:30 a.m. at the Ashley Wilder Dog Park at Knightdale Station Park and the first 120 dogs registered will receive both a Frisbee and a goody bag filled with treats. All dogs must be kept on a leash, non-aggressive, and have up to date rabies tags or a certificate to register for the “Paws in the Park” activities.
