The annual Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the Escalon Kiwanis Club, in cooperation with students of the Escalon High School Key Club, is scheduled for Saturday, April 15 at El Portal Middle School.
The school is at 805 First St., and there will be four different ‘hunt’ areas based on age groups. One area will be set aside for those from birth to two, as well as areas for 3- to 4-year-olds; 5- to 7-year-olds; and 8- to 11-year-olds.
The hunt will start promptly at 10 a.m. – participants should bring their own baskets for collecting eggs and need to arrive in plenty of time to line up for the hunt, as the fields behind the school get picked clean of the colorful eggs in a short time.
Special prize eggs will be featured as well and there will be coffee, juice, chocolate milk, muffins and cookies.
Also making a special appearance will be the Easter Bunny, available for photos, and Escalon’s FFA will be preparing some special Easter baskets for those that find the ‘golden’ eggs.
The Easter Egg Hunt is provided to all ages, up to 11-years-old, at no charge; just come and enjoy.
