Parks Dept.'s Candy Cane Hunt canceled because of rain



We regret to report that the Parks and Recreation Department has canceled the Candy Cane Hunt that was scheduled to take place on Sunday afternoon.
Due to the amount of rain that has fallen over the past two days, the site for the hunt is already waterlogged. Also, the forecast is for rain to continue into Saturday night, so there will be little opportunity for improvement.
“I do not like canceling,” said Mark Simmons of the Parks Department, “but I feel that it would be too messy for the children.”
The Candy Cane Hunt will not be rescheduled for this year.

HENDERSON, Ky. -- The City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department is sponsoring a Candy Cane Hunt for children ages 3 to 10 on Sunday, Dec. 16, in Atkinson Park at the disc golf course.

Parks Department staff will hide 10,000 candy canes for participants to find as well as grand prize candy canes. The activity is free. The start time for the hunt is 2 p.m. Santa Claus will be on hand to help hand out prizes.

Please have children present 10 minutes before starting time. Parks and Recreation Staff will be located in the parking lot by the barbecue shelter to provide help. Signs will be posted with directions.

In case of rain or snow the Candy Cane Hunt will be canceled.
