Virtual Programs

Welcome to the City of Kannapolis Parks and Recreation Virtual Playground! This is your place to find activities to do at home. While we miss seeing everyone in our parks and at our programs, it is important to us to continue to bring the fun to you until we can resume normal programming and events. 

Egg-tober (REGISTER)

COVID-19 has forced us to create new ways to socialize and enjoy traditions. So, the Kannapolis Parks & Recreation Department has devised a plan. A socially distant, candy-filled plan. 

From October 26-30, we'll bring the fun to you with Eggtober. For $10 our Parks & Recreation staff will hide 25 eggs in your front yard filled with candy. The day before delivery, we will notify you via email. (Kannapolis Residents Only)

If you would rather hide your own eggs you may pick them up from City Hall from October 26-30 at a reduced rate. 

Registration is due on Friday, October 23.
