The annual community egg hunt at Jackson Park will start March 30 at 11 a.m. sharp, and Cascade Locks’ annual hunt will begin at 2 p.m. that afternoon.
The Easter Egg Hunt held each year at Jackson Park is going to bigger and better than ever, according to organizer Jeff Mueller, pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church.
“We will be hiding over 7,000 plastic eggs this year,” Mueller said.
Every child ages 1-10 will receive an Easter goodie bag filled with candy, prizes, stickers and activity booklets. The Easter Bunny will be ready for hugs and photos with the kids.
There will also be special entertainment, music and extra surprises such as a possible visit from the “Easter Panda” starting at 10 a.m. up to the egg hunt, which will start at exactly 11 a.m.
Rain or shine, the Easter Egg Hunt will happen.
The community is also invited to help the sponsoring churches stuff more than 800 Easter goodie bags with candy, prizes, stickers and booklets on March 27 at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Ninth and State streets, from 3:30-5:30 p.m.
A annual children’s safety fair will go from 10 a.m. to noon at Jackson Park. The safety fair will feature fire trucks for the kids to explore and the fire department will pass out fire safety info. Sparky the Fire Dog will be present for hugs and photos. Providence Hospital will pass out bike helmet stickers and provide certificates to receive a free bike helmet.
Cascade Locks children ages toddler to fifth-grade are invited to the community’s annual Easter egg hunt March 30, beginning at 2 p.m. behind Cascade Locks School at the playground.
The event is sponsored by Pamela Morse, Karen Peck and Hood River Community Education.
