Whiting Celebrates Easter With "Hop into Whiting" Parade and Egg Hunt

Posted April 14, 2017

Colored eggs, pickled eggs, deviled eggs, egg salad, homemade noodles, baked goods and more will be available. Saturday, April 15 8:30 a.m. -10:30 a.m. There are ways to make it a bit easier for even the littlest hunters to spot their eggs, as well as ways to make the hunts more complicated and engaging for older kids who would otherwise snap up all the eggs in a matter of minutes.

The West Point on the Eno Easter Egg Hunt has become an annual event for the Durham Parks & Recreation Department (DPR), and the department's staff has gotten the event down to a science - splitting the children up into five age groups, from as young as 1 to as old as 12. Grand prize for the older age groups will be a bicycle. There will be candy filled eggs, hard boiled eggs and eggs with notes for free books too! Event participants will meet at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, located at 5318 Palm Ave., and walk together to Saint William's Parish, located at 6410 Santa Lucia Rd., in order to reenact the actual events of Jesus' trial, execution and death. Kids need to bring their own basket or bag to hold eggs.

That hoppinin' guy, the Easter Bunny, has his plans all mapped out, and he's got his basket full of eggs, chocolates and other goodies all ready for the boys and girls of Iowa County.

Delphos Wesleyan Church will hold their annual Easter Bake sale from 9 a.m.to noon on April 15 at Chief Supermarket.

Shayk was spotted with what looked like an engagement ring in December, but they never confirmed the news. A source told People magazine that the couple's little bundle of joy arrived two weeks ago.

Carnival games start at 10 a.m., as does the VIP Easter Egg Hour for special needs children. Now through Saturday, April 15 11 a.m. -7 p.m. Take a photo with the Easter Bunny in between shopping and receive a special free gift.

"There is 4,000 candy-stuffed eggs and 400 prize eggs", Creed said before the mad dash began. Tea with entertainment: A story with costumes, musical numbers and an appearance by the Easter bunny.

"It's kind of a group effort", Lana said.

Children 3 to 8 who are beginning swimmers or nonswimmers can participate from 10:30 to 11 a.m. Children whose heads wouldn't be above water if they stood in water 4-feet deep must be accompanied in the pool by adults, one adult for each child. On Saturday, K-99's Nick Northern, KMON-AM's Skip Walters, BJ and JD of Max Country and Cory Wells with 92.9 will MC the Easter Egg Hunt.
