Western Gateway Park’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt
Fun For All Ages
The annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday was a huge success. With over 4,000 eggs hidden throughout sections of the park, Western Gateway Park in Penn Valley provided children from all over an exciting Saturday morning hunting for eggs filled with surprises and some eggs were filled with numbers for a “special surprise”. Children waited behind the yellow line until the siren rang and the race for eggs was on.
Needless to say no child left the park unhappy. For the last three years my children have had the chance to be a part of this annual event the park put on. My daughter and her best friend from school scouted out the eggs side by side. My daughter was lucky enough to find two eggs with numbers in them and gave one of the numbers to her friend so she could get an extra surprise too. My son is two years older and hunted for eggs in an area for his age group. He found an egg with a number and received a surprise too!
The park provided children an opportunity to take pictures with the Easter Bunny, have their face painted, a chance to win an Easter Basket filled with goodies and refreshments. The Easter Bunny brought sunshine so all the children could hunt for eggs in some very nice weather.
