Easter Egg hunts across the valley


Trinity Lutheran Church sponsors a sunrise Easter service at the west side Boulder Reservoir, scheduled for 6:21 a.m. today.

Strive hosts their 5 annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Botanical Gardens on Saturday, April 15.

This is the eighth year the hunt has been held in Gantry Park and the fourth year in Queensbridge Park, but this year for the first time it will be run by the new LIC community center that opened early this year, Renew Queens.

This Easter weekend sure had the Easter Bunny busy as he hid eggs for multiple different egg hunts throughout the hills Saturday.

The hunt was split into age groups 0 to 12 years old and also had a section for children with disabilities.

Attendees are asked to bring their own eating utensils and beverages as well as a dish to share.

This was Tebbetts' first time keeping an eye out for Brayden, who seemed like a seasoned pro at grabbing as numerous candy-filled, multi-colored plastic Easter eggs he could carry. Parking is limited, so carpool, walk, bike, or golf cart it to the Planet if possible.

The Easter Bunny also made his way to Sturgis, Saturday.

"I'm just a vessel", Brown said.

"It's kind of like organized chaos", said Nina Jehle, 20-30 Club member. Cooke and several volunteers-including her own children-stuffed roughly 3,000 eggs over four nights, then spent two hours placing them throughout the city park the morning of the event, which annually draws around 180-200 children.

At about 10:45 a.m., the crowd gathered around the field where hundreds of Easter eggs were still protected from the reach of children.

But for some kids, the egg hunt isn't the best part of Easter. It was started by Don Slade, he said, who began with 10-dozen eggs.

The Easter Bunny has been hard at work at All Star Sports.

High pitch, low pitch, fast pitch, slow pitch, the eggs beep all over the field as the kids with visual impairments see the eggs with their hands and ears.
