The 18th Annual Community and the 7th Annual Visually Impaired Easter Egg Hunts are scheduled for Saturday.
According to the City of Salina the events will be on Fields 3 and 4 at the E. Crawford Recreation Area, 841 Markley Road.
The Community Easter Egg Hunt begins on Field 3 at 10:30 a.m. for children age 4 and under, 11 a.m. for children age 5-7, and 11:30 a.m. for children age 8-10. The Visually Impaired Easter Egg Hunt begins on Field 4 at 10:30 a.m. for children age 13 and under.
In addition to the Easter egg hunts, there will be prizes and opportunities for participants to take photos with the Easter Bunny. Participants should bring a basket or bag to collect eggs, and a camera if they would like to take photos.
The annual Eisenhower Easter Egg Roll will be held Saturday as well, in Abilene from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the Eisenhower Presidential Library, 200 SE 4th Street. Free admission will be offered all day.
The egg hunt begins promptly at 1 p.m. when the siren sounds — so plan to be early! The egg hunt is divided into several age groups. Additional activities include games, face painting, Easter bunny photos, and the 4-H petting zoo!
The Eisenhower Easter Egg Roll is modeled after the White House Easter Egg Roll dating back to 1878. It is one of the oldest annual events in White House History. To learn more about this long standing tradition, please visit the White House Historical Association at www.whha.org.
