Town’s Easter parade, egg hunt part of Boucherie weekend


Tylertown’s annual Easter parade and egg hunt and the South Mississippi Boucherie all take place the same weekend this year. Both the parade and hunt are open to children 10 and under.
Organizers say both Chamber events are family activities and should complement one another.
The parade begins Saturday, March 23, at 10 a.m. at Centennial Square, downtown, as kids, accompanied by parents and family, take part in games and Easter crafts, meet Miss Hospitality and get photo ops with the Easter Bunny, prior to parading in the square at 11 a.m.
Angie Boyd, who has chaired the activity in the square for years, says cookies and milk will be available. After the parade ends, there is plenty of time for participants to grab lunch and proceed to Holmes Water Park for the Easter egg hunt. Kids will need to be at the water park around 12:30 or a little after to get instructions and split into age groups for the hunt, kicking off at 1 p.m. Hunting areas are set aside for ages 2 and under, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8 and 9-10.
Over 3000 plastic eggs stuffed with candy are to be hidden in areas roped off for the specific age groups.
As a bonus, the South Mississippi Boucherie barbecue events will be underway next door at Southwest Events Center so families can enjoy, not only the egg hunt, but the Boucherie children’s activities, including the playground, inflatables, train ride, face painting and other kid-friendly events afterward, while their folks browse the craft vendors, enjoy a snack or meal from the various food trucks on hand and watch the amateur Patio teams and professional Championship barbeque teams in action.
“Both the Easter parade and egg hunt are popular events, and combining them with the Boucherie we expect even more participation this year,” said Chamber president, Gerri Mathis.
