More than 40 children enjoyed the annual Easter egg hunt Saturday, April 9 at the park.

The hour-long event included sack races, egg-and-spoon races, face painting and photos with the Easter bunny before culminating with the egg hunt.

Jayson Martinez was a big hit as the Easter bunny. So were face painters Jessica and Isabel Campos.

Making it all possible were volunteers or sponsors: Kiki Contreras, Ana Flores, Jose Martinez, Melissa Martinez, John Prince, Dan Tuttle, Susan Tuttle and Roxanne Fackler.
