Easter egg hunts to keep Saturday hopping


The hunt for eggs will be on this weekend.

Organizations are hosting Easter egg hunts for children Saturday.

Exchange Club of Walla Walla's 53rd annual Children's Easter Egg Hunt will be 9 a.m. at Pioneer Park. The hunt will feature 21 prizes, including three bicycles, which will be awarded in categories for 1- to 3-year-olds, 4- to 6-year-olds, 7- to 10-year-olds and special needs. The event is free and open to the public. There are approximately 40,500 individually wrapped chocolate Easter eggs weighing in at a total of 480 pounds. The prize collection takes up approximately five shopping carts.

The Milton-Freewater Kiwanis Club and Milton-Freewater Rotary Club will sponsor that community's annual Easter Egg Hunt at 9 a.m. at Yantis Park.

At 10 a.m., the Easter Bunny will head to Nature Garden Florist & Gifts on the corner of North Main Street and Broadway Avenue. The bunny will be there until noon. Children can go for pictures and a candy treat. Photos will be available for purchase to help offset the cost of the egg hunt. Pictures are $2 for a 4-by-6-inch shot, or $5 for a 5-by-7. The photos will be available to take home right after they're taken.
