My kiddos at an Easter Egg Hunt event 2 years ago

At this free Easter event, children ages 12 and under will receive a plastic Easter egg with a chance to win a special prize.  Families are also encouraged to stop by their neighborhood store between now and April 11 to pick up an ‘egg-cellent’ coloring sheet for a special Easter Egg Coloring Contest. The Coloring Contest winner will be announced during the Easter Eggztravaganza event on Saturday, April 12 and will be awarded various Easter themed prizes. What's cool, the winner does not need to be present to win.
