The Town of Tonawanda and Rotary Club of Kenmore will hold their 34th annual Easter egg hunt for children beginning at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, April 8, inside the Lincoln Arena, 1200 Parker Boulevard.
The free indoor event regularly draws about 500 children. Participants must be Kenmore or Town of Tonawanda residents, aged 2 to 10.
"This is a community favorite," said Tonawanda Councilman Dan Crangle, chairman of the Youth, Parks and Recreation Committee. "You can come for a few minutes to find your eggs or stay longer to enjoy the other activities."
There will be an egg hunt, with a special treat inside each egg, as well as face painting and balloon animals, a magic show, coloring and an opportunity to visit with the Easter Bunny. Each child is limited to five eggs and participants are encouraged to bring their own bag or basket.
The hunt is staggered by ages, beginning at 10:30 a.m. for children with special needs, 11 a.m. for children ages 2-3, 11:30 a.m. for ages 4-6 and noon for ages 7 to 10.
Ken-Ton Closet will be collecting gently-used children's winter coats at the event. Non-perishable foods will also be collected for the local food pantry. The Ken-Ton Kiwanis will be selling hot dogs, pop and coloring books at a concession stand. In addition, the Rotary Club of Kenmore will be collecting donations and painting fingers for the Purple Pinkie Project to eradicate polio.
