Dozens of young divers and snorkelers age 11 and under are expected to wade into the indoor heated pool in Ocean Pines on Friday, March 23 in search of brightly colored “eggs-cellent” prizes during the community’s annual Easter Egg-stravaganza Dive and Pool Party.
“Who knew the Easter Bunny likes to swim? Well, he does,” said Ocean Pines Aquatics and Recreation Director Colby Phillips. “Splash on in and gather up as many Easter eggs as you can. This truly is a fun event for all. We will also have a DJ on hand spinning tunes, a jelly bean counting contest and Easter themed coloring pages.”
The Sports Core Pool, located at 11144 Cathell Road in Ocean Pines, will be filled with plastic Easter eggs for Ocean Pines residents and guests to enjoy from 5:30-8 p.m.
Swimmers will be divided into different age groups to ensure everyone has a chance to collect eggs.
Children under age 6 must have an adult in the water with them. Life jackets are available at no charge.
“The team has so much fun putting on these types of events for the community and seeing all the smiling faces,” said Phillips.
The cost of the special event is $6 per swimmer and $3 for non-swimmers. Pre-registration is not required for the Easter Egg-stravaganza Dive and Pool Party. For more information, contact the Ocean Pines Aquatics Department at 410-641-5255.
