Here comes Peter Cottontail


You won’t have to hunt to find plenty of Easter activities this weekend.

Several organizations are offering fun events for kids to celebrate the holiday.

The Walla Walla Exchange Club will host its 54th annual Children’s Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday in Pioneer Park starting at 9 a.m. The hunt includes 26 prizes, including three bicycles, awarded in four age categories: 1-3, 4-6 and 7-10; and special needs. All are welcome at the free event, which includes about 40,500 individually wrapped chocolate eggs weighing a total of about 480 pounds. The prize collection occupies about five shopping carts.

The Children’s Museum of Walla Walla will host a free Easter egg hunt for kids 1-12 on Saturday. Three heats will be offered so everyone will have a chance to get eggs. Infants and toddlers will lead the pack at 1 p.m. Older kids will follow about 10 minutes later. The Easter bunny will also be there for pictures, purchased by donation. Crafts and special prizes in certain eggs will be offered.

The Milton-Freewater Kiwanis and Rotary clubs will join together Saturday for their free Easter egg hunt at Yantis Park. The festivities begin at 10 a.m.

An Easter egg hunt in Dayton’s city park is planned for 10 a.m. Saturday, courtesy of Dayton Kiwanis Club, Bank of America, National Honor Society & Dayton First Christian Church.
