Always a well-attended event, Saturday will feature the annual Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the Escalon Kiwanis Club.
Staged with the assistance of students in the Escalon High School Key Club, this year’s ‘hunt’ is scheduled for Saturday, April 15 at El Portal Middle School starting at 10 a.m.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive early, as the swarm starts as soon as the clock strikes 10 a.m.
The school is at 805 First St., and Kiwanis Club members said there will be four different ‘hunt’ areas, all based on age, with specific locations designated 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. Participants should also bring their own baskets for collecting eggs. Along with hundreds of candy filled plastic eggs, there will be special ‘golden’ eggs that can be turned in for Easter prize baskets, being provided by the Escalon FFA and community donations.
There will be coffee, juice, chocolate milk, muffins and cookies provided by the Kiwanis Club and the Easter Bunny will be on hand to pose for photos and greet the crowd.
