SPARKS, Nev. — The Outlets at Sparks will host a Halloween Egg Hunt at 5 p.m. Oct. 31 at the shopping center, 1310 Scheels Drive in Sparks, followed by trick-or-treating until 7 p.m.
Children ages 1 to 10 years are invited for a safe Halloween adventure. On the Outlets at Sparks property, black-and-orange eggs will be filled with candy and such prizes as gift cards to on-site stores. At 5 p.m., children will be put into groups by age, and will hunt for eggs in select areas of the outdoor mall. The egg hunt portion will last about 20 minutes.
During the hunt, costumed kids will collect as many eggs as possible, after which a safe trick-or-treat also will take place as the children will gather more candy in front of the stores. There also will be a costume contest with prizes given for the best three costumes. A DJ will perform, and stores will celebrate with sidewalk sales.
