OAKHURST -The venue for Saturday’s Easter Egg hunt sponsored by the Children’s Museum of the Sierra has changed.
The event was originally to be held at Oakhurst Community Park, but with the chance of rain entering the forecast this weekend, event organizers thought it best to relocate.“Nothing dampens spirits like rain on an outdoor event, so we thought we would move the hunt to the museum and change the format a bit to facilitate the move,” said Jarrod Lyman, president of the museum’s board of directors.
There will be numerous treat-filled eggs hidden throughout the museum’s many exhibits for kids to discover on Saturday, Mar. 30. Kids can come any time throughout the museum’s normal operating hours, which are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., to look for eggs while also exploring the museum. The cost for the hunt is included with museum admission.
The Sierra Lions Club will also be on hand barbecuing hamburgers and hotdogs for lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 .pm. The cost of lunch, which will include burger or hotdog, drink and chips, will be just $5.
The Easter Bunny is also on board with the venue change, and will be onsite from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. to meet kids and pose for photos.
“He promised that he would make the venue change with us. He definitely decided he’d rather stay dry as well,” Lyman said.
