Council Road Baptist Church, in Bethany, will once again host its citywide Easter egg hunt. The church canceled the event last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Church leaders expect as many as 1,200 children to attend.
Jason Arnold, executive pastor at Council Road, said he is excited to once again host the event.
“We’re going to have at least 10,000 Easter eggs for kids to find,” said Arnold.
This year church leaders wanted to include some kids who typically get left out of these events.
“We’re doing for the first time an adaptive, sensory-friendly Easter egg hunt...It’s for all kids with all abilities, who may not have been able to do one in the past,” said Arnold.
The church’s goal is to be sensitive to the needs of these kids and will alleviate loud sounds as well as positioning the eggs where they can be reached by kids in wheelchairs.
Other fun events include games and crafts, a snow cone machine, and the Coit’s food truck.
Four different egg hunts are planned throughout the day, Saturday, April 3 from 10 a.m. until noon.
The event is free. For more information visit the church’s website here.
