Saturday Easter Egg Hunts in Sheridan County

Touchmark - The egg hunt is at Touchmark on Saddle Drive.

Lynch added, "Started out, we probably had maybe 30-40 people the first time, and previous year I think we had over 100 so we're looking today to maybe 100 kids come back again, especially since it is such a pretty day".

All other groups will begin at 10:30 a.m. Donations are welcome. All money collected will be donated to the Angel Fund, which assists schoolchildren who need classroom supplies and clothing.

Age groups include: Toddler to 4 years old; 5 to 8 years old and 9 to 12 years old. For a small fee, residents can also get their face painted and receive balloon animals.

The South Beloit High School Leo's Club, in coordination with the Lion's Club, will host its annual Easter egg hunt on the high school football field, 245 Prairie Hill Road.

Eggs are filled with prizes and cookies and refreshments will be served. This tradition of Easter eggs came from Christian community Mesopotamia who stained eggs in red colour in memory Jesus blood shredded at the crucifixion. This massive egg hunt is also a great chance to explore the park this spring. 1 p.m. There will have children separated into age groups, with plenty of candy and prizes. In addition, there will be treats for all participants.

Time: 10 a.m.to noon.

The Association of Latin American Students at Western Nevada College will host the eighth annual Easter Fiesta from 10 a.m.to 3 p.m. Join the student club for games and activities for children of all ages at Rotary Plaza at the Carson City campus, 2201 W. College Parkway. Also on hand will be the Easter Bunny, and, new this year, a local arts and crafts farmers market.

Thorntown will hold its annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Tom Johnson Memorial Park near state Route 75 and West Mill Street. Ages 1-2 will be hunting inside the Lions clubhouse. Rain date is 4 p.m. April 17. The first session will start at 1:30 p.m. and is open to all children so children with a range of abilities and their siblings can hunt together.

Prizes will be available during both sessions.

If you can't make any of the festivities on Saturday, there is a Easter Egg Hunt at Eagle Creek Park on Thursday, April 27. Roll over to Orange, like an egg might, before it shutters on April 15.
