Tualatin, Sherwood groups put on Easter egg hunts
The Easter Bunny will make two local stops this Saturday.
The Tualatin Lions Club is carrying on its 25-year tradition of hosting the annual Tualatin Easter egg hunt at Tualatin Community Park, 8515 S.W. Tualatin Road, starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
And the Woodhaven Community Church in Sherwood is continuing its eight-year tradition of an annual Easter egg hunt this year to be held at Stella Olson Park, 22256 S.W. Washington St., Saturday at 1 p.m.
The Tualatin event is open to children toddler age to 8 years old.
Close to a thousand plastic Easter eggs will be scattered throughout the Tualatin park. For the egg hunts, the children are separated by ages into four heats. The first heat will be the toddlers and 2-year-olds. The second heat will be 3- and 4-year-olds. The third heat will be 5- and 6-year-olds. The fourth and final heat will be 7- and 8-year-olds.
Children will get packages of chocolate, and some eggs will even result in special prizes. Coffee and juice will be available to event goers. Lions Club organizers will also be accepting donations of canned food to benefit the Tualatin School House Food Pantry. The event is expected to end by 11 a.m.
Lions Club members are expecting a few hundred children to show up for the annual event come rain or shine.
The Sherwood event is open to children from toddlers to fifth-graders. Children will be separated into three groups for the egg hunt: ages 0 to 2, 3-year-olds to kindergarteners and first- to fifth-graders.
Several hundred children are expected to attend the hunt at the Sherwood park. Plastic eggs will contain candy and special prizes. The event is expected to wrap up around 2:30 p.m.
