The River Valley Community Church is hosting the 7th annual Easter Egg Hunt, featuring one hunt for kids aged six and under, and another for kids aged seven to twelve. Organizer Gabe Warriner says Save-On Foods is donating over 10,000 Easter eggs: “Last year we had 6000 eggs so this year we’re actually going to have 10 to 12 thousand, so we’re pretty much going to double what we did last year….” He adds other businesses have also pitched in: “The community always rallies around us and helps us put on this event, and it’s been no different this year. It’s a strong community, helping us just reach out to the kids and have fun.” Warriner says usually a couple-hundred kids come out to take part: “Last year we had probably around 500 people because there are a lot of parents and grandparents showing up, but we know there are still a lot of kids that are not hearing about it or they don’t know the magnitude of it, just how big it is or just all the different activities and things to do there.” This year’s theme is superheroes, and there will be interactive shows and door prizes, plus, the first 100 kids registered will receive a super hero bracelet! The event runs Saturday, April 20th, from 10AM to 12PM at City Park.
