This Saturday’s town of Pulaski Easter Egg Hunt will offer more than just a chance to hunt eggs and meet the Easter Bunny.
According to town spokeswoman Barbi Tate, participating children will have a chance to win bikes donated by The Southwest Times and receive free books and bookmarks from Pulaski County Library System.
Pulaski Area Transit and New River Valley Senior Services Inc. will be on hand to provide freshly popped popcorn.
The hunt gets underway at 11 a.m. in Jackson Park, between First Street NW and the railroad tracks. Egg hunt participants compete in three age categories: walking to four years of age, five to eight years old and nine to 12.
Children finding eggs marked “winner” will take home one of the bikes to be given away.
Parents are invited to bring their cameras along to take photos of their child visiting with the Easter Bunny, who will be located in the gazebo throughout the event. Children will also have a chance to decorate a cookie.
In the event of rain, activities will be postponed until April 19.
For more information call 994-8627.
The egg hunt is sponsored by Food City, town of Pulaski, The Southwest Times, New Life Church of the Nazarene, New River Jujitsu, Pulaski Area Transit and Pulaski State Farm agent Webb Donald.
