Easter egg hunts set

Children picked the grass in front of Cleveland school clean Saturday morning during an Easter egg hunt sponsored by the district's Community Education. Children should bring their own basket for the egg hunt. There will be 500 eggs for them to gather.

And she wasn't shy about announcing her favorite bounty.

Chris Magdaleno, 6, of Cottage Hills, revealed his strategy before the hunt commenced.

"It's our first time and I think my wife saw it on Facebook", he said. "I hope I get a lot, like ten". Howard said that he's grateful that the city offers as many programs as they do and appreciates the opportunities that such programs present for his daughter.

Participants who collect additional pledges for the Northumberland Humane Society are eligible to collect more eggs.

"It's kind of a guess when it comes to the weather", she said.

Colorful eggs will abound this weekend during Easter egg hunts at local churches and parks in Banning and Beaumont.

"My two-year-old son is excited, but my almost year-old daughter doesn't seem to care too much", Carpenter said.

First off, the township's annual Breakfast with the Easter Bunny will be held in two seatings scheduled for 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.at the Baker Street Civic Center.

St Luke's Terrace will be "dressed" with Easter bunnies, Easter eggs and many other characters.

Around 16,000 eggs are filled with candy and toys for children ages 3-10 to find. Then the kids let loose on the field and in the playground, scrambling to grab up eggs from corners of the park and one boy even scrambled up a stump to pluck one from a tree branch. Pallion Traders have involved 17 shops who will each have an Easter egg hidden, with a clue to find the next one with a hunt map to guide the children and families taking part.

The children's hunt runs from noon to 1 p.m., while the adults' hunt runs from 1 p.m.to 2 p.m. Children's Pastor Corey Shadd said the "drop" is a big hit with kids and their event is free from 9:30 a.m.to 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

That hoppinin' guy, the Easter Bunny, has his plans all mapped out, and he's got his basket full of eggs, chocolates and other goodies all ready for the boys and girls of Iowa County.
