Easter hops in with egg hunts and more

Friday, 30 Mar, 2018

Go here for our guide to all the many, many, Easter brunches in Dallas. Special golden eggs will contain big prizes such as park tickets and Wild Adventures Bucks, redeemable at in-park retailers.

This year's Easter Day Egg Hunt sponsors and contributors include C-W Grocery Outlet, Columbia Gorge Women's Association, Soroptimist International of Camas-Washougal, VFW Post 4278 and Winco, which discounted the wrapped candy found inside the eggs. The Easter Bunny will have activities for kids including a downhill egg roll challenge and a mega Easter egg hunt featuring more than 1,000 eggs.

For example, Saturday is traditionally spent decorating Easter eggs, while parents and their children hunt for them with children on Sunday morning, by which time they have been mysteriously hidden all over the house and garden. The idea was to give every child a chance to gather a decent amount of eggs in their basket. All are invited and welcome. Adults are not allowed inside the egg-hunting areas, except in the ages 2 to 3 zone.

Walter's Pumpkin Patch: The venue at 10001 NW U.S. Highway 77 is putting on several Easter events, including a hunt that starts at 2 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. You'll find no fooling here, unless obnoxious egg puns count as fooling, in which case you'll find plenty of fooling here.

WHITE BIRD - The White Bird Easter egg hunt will be Saturday, March 31, 10 a.m., at the WBARD building.

March 30, 3 p.m.to 6 p.m.

With daily riddles, children and families will have an added layer of fun when shopping in the town this Easter, encouraging children to think, learn, and follow information correctly. There's a variation of that in which a Germanic divinity named Eostre, associated with spring, changed her pet bird into a hare that laid colored eggs to amuse children.

Sponsors for this year's event are the Heritage Inn, The Taber Times, Taber Co-Op, Taber Fire Department, Taber Police Service and the Taber Kinsmen Club.

COTTONWOOD - Emmanuel Baptist Church, 404 Foster in Cottonwood, will be having a Sonrise service beginning at 6 a.m. Sunday, April 1. There will be challengers, gmes, inflatables and prizes.

Over 200 people registered for the March 24 event with children participating from infants to 12 years old. This event is a potluck so please bring a dish to share. This belief is said to have led to the traditions of making nests for the rabbits to lay their eggs.

"I love this event, because it's so intergenerational", says Keith Dickerson, the pastor at Hope Community Church.
