The City of Pembroke held its annual Easter Egg Hunt last Saturday, March 15, at Dubois Square.

Along with the fluffy-white Easter Bunny, Pembroke Mayor Judy Cook welcomed over 30 kids and their family members to the festivities.

The kids hunted for over 1,200 eggs hidden throughout the square.

Some of the eggs had special prize tickets inside.

After the egg hunt, the kids guessed how many jelly beans were in a special jar and then enjoyed fresh cookies, chocolate milk and juice donated by McDonalds.

The winner of the jelly bean jar guess was eight year old Jordan Cook of Pembroke.

All participants received a raffle ticket for an Easter prize donated by the City of Pembroke. The Pembroke Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary also donated three great door prizes. Bobby Joe Sikes, of the Auxiliary presented the three prizes to Jordan Cook, Daxne Carrera and Shania Bostick.

"Always have a great time at the City Easter Egg Hunt," said Mayor Cook. "It’s a tradition for Pembroke and this year we had great weather and a good turnout."
