Easter Egg Hunts are a colorful annual tradition for the City of La Quinta. Managing Broker Sandy Beakey of Windermere’s La Quinta and La Quinta Old Town offices tells us that on Saturday, April 23, Windermere Real Estate, in collaboration with La Quinta Community Services and the Boys and Girls Club of Coachella Valley, will be happily hiding 8,000 Easter eggs for kids up to 10 years old (the kids, not the eggs). Goodies, toys and surprises will be scattered around the park, with prizes to include big Easter bunnies, and more. Johnny Atkinson, morning news anchor/producer for KMIR Channel 6, and Ginger Jeffries, of KESQ Channel 3 News, will be Windermere’s celebrity judges for the Chalk Drawing Contest immediately following the hunt.
And if that’s not enough to egg you on, also scheduled to make an official appearance is that big lovable fur-covered character recognized by millions of kids as the bringer of fun and goodies each year…Santa Claus!
Hah! The yolk’s on you…It’s the Easter Bunny, of course! Yep, kids will get to meet the one and only genuine Easter Bunny…who’da thought the big fella would have time available in his busy schedule the Saturday morning right before Easter? Well, consider this: The Easter Bunny is only around for photo ops. It’s really the chickens who do all the work.
The festivities begin at 9:00 am at La Quinta Park (across from La Quinta High School).
Get there early. You don’t want to have to scramble.
