he Parker Chamber of Commerce Easter egg hunt was held on Saturday, April 26. About 300 people made the short trip to Birds, Bucks and Berries, just south of Parker to take part in this year’s event. From pictures with bunnies and a lamb, to activities such as face painting and cookie decorating, kids of all ages took part.

One hundred and sixty kids enjoyed the hustle and bustle of searching for 800 colored plastic eggs and prizes were given out to each contestant and three golden eggs were hidden and Easter baskets were given out for those that were found and also to the coloring contest winners.

“It was more than just an Easter egg hunt, it was an Easter event for families to enjoy activities together. The weather made this year’s Easter egg hunt a huge success! However, the location was perfect too. It provided a large space to accommodate the three age appropriate areas for the hunt as well as for the additional activities we wanted to have for the kids. The FCCLA students were wonderful in helping with the activities of decorating cookies and to face painting and more. Without their help, we couldn’t have offered the extras for the kids. Of course, it is all the people behind the scenes that make any event a success and the Chamber thanks them for their help. We hope to offer the same activities for next year’s hunt with a few fun new additions,” said Linda Reynolds who headed up the event.
