Capital Region Grown Up Egg Hunt 2017

Capital District Grownup Egg Hunt

The Capital Region Grown Up Egg Hunt is set to return April 23. And for the first time ever, it's going to be in Albany -- at Jennings Landing in Corning Riverfront Park.

Also this year, there are two "city hunts" -- one along Lark Street in Albany, and the other in downtown Troy.

Tickets for the hunt are $13 and available online. The beneficiaries of this year's hunt are Albany Center Gallery and In Our Own Voices.

Grown up egg hunt? It's pretty much what it sounds like. Organizers stuff 5,000 eggs with some of prize -- candy, or a voucher for some item from a local business -- and then participants go find them. The proceeds from the hunt go to charity.

This is now the sixth year for the hunt. It was originally founded and organized by Danielle Sanzone. And it's now run by Ty Versocki from the Albany media and marketing firm Relentless Awareness.
