Easter Bunny visits Craig early at State Farm Easter Egg Hunt
CRAIG — The Easter Bunny got an early start in Craig on Saturday, March 24, hiding 14,000 eggs in Veterans Memorial Park, and during the subsequent Easter egg hunt, hosted by Justin Stokes State Farm Insurance, kids of all ages clamored after plastic eggs filled with candy and prizes.
In each of the three age divisions, 0 to 3 years, 4 to 6 years and 7 and older, children had the chance to find the golden egg, which won them a gift basket and a $25 Walmart gift card.
Volunteers from the Craig Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints stuffed the eggs with candy and prizes donated by Walmart, Adventure Club, Thunder Rolls Bowling Center and West Theatre.
“We just wanted to do something for the community,” Justin Stokes said. “We’re trying to live up to State Farm’s motto of being a good neighbor.”
The Easter Bunny is expected to make a second pass over Craig Easter weekend.
New Creation Church will host activities and an egg hunt Saturday, March 31. Activities, including a bounce house, petting zoo and more, will begin at 9 a.m. The egg hunt will get underway at 11 a.m. The event is free for children in fifth grade and younger.
The same day, Adventure Zone will host its inaugural egg hunt. The event begins at 1 p.m. and includes an hour of play on the facility’s bounce equipment for $3 or an all-day pass for $7.
With players finding themselves in new parts of the field Saturday afternoon, the Moffat County High School soccer team had more than a few difficulties against its latest opponents, though if there was one takeaway for their coach it was the benefit of Bulldogs getting new perspectives.
