The College Station Easter Egg hunt has been a tradition for over 24 years hosted by the College Station Police Department. Each year the event became increasingly popular with the local community, drawing larger and larger crowds.

Local merchants contribute prizes to give away along with six bicycles awarded to randomly selected winners in each of the three age categories. The College Station Fire Department will provide a puppet show for the children while volunteers give away Coca-Cola and snacks.
This year's event promises to be even bigger and better than last year. So please join us for this celebration, and while you are here enjoy the final weekend for the exhibit in our changing exhibit gallery " American Women: A Selection from the National Portrait Gallery . "
