Hop on over to Easter Carnival


For most people, Easter represents a blend of traditions that may include a religious element of church attendance along with the Easter Bunny, egg coloring and Peeps. Thanks to the Jr. Women’s Club and the Family Matters Club, an Easter egg hunt is a long-standing tradition in the community that has grown into an annual event.

For many years, the Jr. Women’s Club hosted an Easter egg hunt for the community. For the past four years, the Family Matters Club has carried on the tradition.

The Family Matters Club invites the community to hop on over to Holiday Harbor tomorrow, Mar. 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for its 4th annual Easter Carnival.

This egg-citing event will feature an egg hunt, visit from the Easter Bunny, carnival games, crafts, and more. For the adults, there will be a shopping section with vendors.

All inclusive wristbands cost $5 per child and include participation in the egg hunt, photos with the Easter Bunny and unlimited games, prizes, crafts, bounce house fun, face painting and temporary tattoos. Snack foods and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the snack bar.

The Easter egg hunt will be divided into the following age groups:

Ages three and younger: 1:15 p.m.

Ages four to six: 1:25 p.m.

Ages seven to 10: 1:35 p.m.

Ages 11 and older: 1:45 p.m.

One parent may help their child in the three and under age group if necessary. Adults will not be allowed in the older age groups. Children should bring a basket or bag to hold their eggs.

Children can exchange the eggs (colored golf balls) for a goody bag and a coupon for a free lunch at Texas Roadhouse.

The Family Matters Club is open to all residents, young and old, kids or no kids. The club puts on several events throughout the year to benefit the community and raise funds for philanthropic donations. Events are free or low-cost to attend.
