The city of Pembroke’s annual Easter Egg-stravaganza event is Saturday beginning at 10 a.m.
"This event gets better every year," coordinator Tonya Raulerson said. "It looks like we’ll be blessed with good weather, so we encourage everyone to come out for some family fun."The event will take place at the Pembroke City Park located behind the courthouse beginning at 10 a.m. Activities will include a jelly bean counting contest, games and goodies for the kids and a visit from the Easter Bunny. The main event will be the big Easter egg hunt, which begins promptly at 10 a.m.
Raulerson encourages kids to bring their Easter basket. The hunt will be divided into age groups designated to different areas of the park.
Toys will be dispersed to those who find the prize eggs.
After the egg hunt, a variety of Easter-themed games will take place. Raulerson said the Easter Bunny will read "bunny stories" to the smaller kids while this is going on. Snacks will be provided.
The event is sponsored by the city and has existed for over a decade. Each year, the city sets aside $200 in the budget to fund the Easter festivities, which includes funding for Easter baskets given to winners of the annual coloring contest.
