The Children's Museum of the Sierra in Oakhurst will sponsor a traditional Easter egg hunt and barbecue beginning at 10 a.m., Saturday, March 30 at the Oakhurst Community Park behind the library.
"We heard that there wasn't going to be a hunt this year and of course some parents were disappointed so we decided we could take up the event," said Steve Montalto, director of the museum. "There will be Easter egg hunts for kids in different age groups. Children 2-3 will have one area, children 4-5 in another, while children 6-8 will be in a third area."
There will also be a celebrity appearance at the event.
"We pulled a few strings, called in a few favors and our friend the Easter Bunny will be there to say 'Hi' to the kids and pose for photos," Montalto said.
"The idea is to create a nice, family friendly event that will allow everyone to go out and have some fun as a family and interact with other families," Jarrod Lyman, president of the museum's board of directors said.
The cost will be $2 for the Easter egg hunt for the first child of a family and $1 for every child after that.
After the hunt, the Sierra Lions Club will provide families a grilled hamburger or hot dog with chips and a drink for $5.
