NEWCASTLE — Oxbow Brewing Company’s third annual egg hunt will take place on Saturday, at the farmhouse brewery, located at 274 Jones Woods Road.

This year’s event is a fundraiser for the Maine Children’s Cancer Program, which provides integrated, comprehensive medical care and psychosocial and practical support services to infants, children, and adolescents throughout Maine with cancer and blood disorders.

Country Coach Charters has donated shuttle service from the parking lot at St. Patrick’s Church to the event and back since event parking at Oxbow is limited to staff and volunteers. The shuttle will start at 11:30 a.m. and run every 10 minutes until 3 p.m.

In addition to plenty of eggs filled with peanut-free treats, children, and adults will also have a chance to find two golden eggs filled with a prize for each – goodie baskets for kids and Oxbow gift certificates for adults.

The Riverside Butcher Co., Damariscotta’s family-run full service butcher shop, will be selling smash burgers made from local, all-natural beef and other locally sourced food. In addition to Oxbow’s fresh draft beer, children’s drinks and snacks will also be available.

Live music will be played from 1 to 3 p.m.

Registration for the all-ages egg hunt begins at noon. The hunt will take place at 12:30 p.m. The $5 entry fee goes directly to the MCCP.
