Rain causes changes for Easter egg hunts

A stretch of rain has resulted in changes for two Easter egg hunts.

Saturday’s 59th Community Easter Egg Hunt will actually become a plastic-egg handout.

The event, originally planned to be outdoors at Donner Park, will instead be conducted inside Donner Center, 739 22nd St.

Kids up to age 8 will still have a chance to collect a basket full of eggs. About 7,000 eggs filled with trinkets and treats will be distributed starting at 9:30 a.m.

Also Saturday, the Teens Only Glows in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt has been moved to the Donner Park Shelter House. It had originally been scheduled for Mill Race Park, expected to be too soggy to host the event.

That event, planned by the Foundation For Youth Teen Center, will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday with games and music, followed by the glow-in-the-dark egg hunt at dusk.
