For a third year in a row, New Creation Church will host an Easter egg hunt for families in the community at 11 a.m. Saturday.
With 10,000 eggs prepared, children will have no shortage of the holiday icon as they search for them on the church’s property. All are welcome for the free event, which is open to youths in fifth grade and younger.
Registration begins at 10 a.m., and before the egg hunt, kids and their parents can enjoy a variety of activities, such as face-painting, a petting zoo and bounce houses. Children also can enter drawings the church will offer for giveaways of more than a dozen free bicycles.
Organizer Jessica Ashton said the preparation for the event, which last year saw about 300 children and 600 people total, begins in January and involves work and donations from many of the church’s parishioners to provide a fun environment the day before Easter.
“We have it Saturday, so everyone can spend Sunday with their families,” she said. “We just want to show God’s love and generosity to our community.”
With an above-average snowpack following a snowy winter, local firefighters and wildlife experts are expecting a mild fire season this year, especially at higher elevations.
