Annual Easter egg hunt takes place on March 31
The Estacada Fire Volunteer Association is preparing for Easter with 6,000 plastic eggs.
The annual community Easter egg hunt, which the group sponsors, will begin promptly at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 31. Children are invited to come and find the numerous eggs that have been stuffed with candy and prizes.
During the event, the Estacada Football Stadium is divided into areas designated for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, first, second and third graders while the children hunt for eggs. Additionally, there will be an area with activities for children with special needs, with Easter baskets provided by Key Bank.
Attendees will be able to check out a fire apparatus during the event, and the Easter Bunny will also make an appearance.
"The Easter Egg Hunt is a favorite event for all the staff and volunteers of Estacada Rural Fire District No. 69," Connie Redmond of the Fire Volunteer Association wrote in a press release. "It's an event that takes several hours to prepare for and is finished in about two minutes. But what a fun two minutes those are."
Those who wish to make a donation to the egg hunt can drop them off at the fire station, 445 S.E. Jeremy Loveless Avenue, or mail them to the Estacada Fire Volunteer Association, P.O. Box 608, Estacada.
