The Easter & Earth Celebration will be back on Saturday, April 15 when there will be plenty of fun for the entire family.
Recreation Director Ed Mount told the City Council at the April 3 meeting that the Easter & Earth Day Celebration would again be held at Teague Park, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“We’re looking forward to our annual Easter & Earth Day in the park,” including the Easter Egg Hunt for different age divisions of children starting at 11 a.m. The Easter Egg Hunt is for children 1 to 8 years old.
But there’s plenty more planned for the free celebration: there will be arts and crafts, carnival booths for kids 9 to 12 years old, Earth Day Games, exhibits including Santa Paula Police and Santa Paula Fire department personnel and equipment, visits with the Easter Bunny, story-telling, entertainment and food for sale.
The Easter Egg hunt is going to be huge with the support of Bridge Church: “A major partner for Easter Egg Course is providing 2,000 eggs,” said Mount.
Pastor Adelita Garza “Came into the Recreation Department for a permit,” to hold a Easter Egg Hunt church event at the same time and day as the city’s celebration, and Mount said the decision was made to partner.
“She was able to get funding and volunteers to help us at all our activities,” he noted.
Recology Ventura — whose motto is “Zero Waste” — is again the event’s major sponsor; the Santa Paula Rotary Club, Santa Paula Super Store and Mercer-Prieto VFW Post 2043 are also supporters.
Parents are asked to make sure their children have their own basket for the Easter Egg Hunt. Bring your own reusable water bottle — water and refills will be provided from Recology Ventura.
