People have always known the Easter bunny for bringing candy and eggs to kids on Easter. But after this year, the bunny may be known for her dance moves.
At this year's Easter Eggstravaganza, the Easter bunny will kick off the egg hunts by leading kids in the popular dance craze, the Harlem Shake.
This year's Eggstravaganza takes place March 30 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Community Recreation Center.
Besides dancing, the free event will feature food, games, prizes, face painting, tattoos, and of course loads of candy.
"We just got done sorting 2,000 pounds of mixed candy," organizer Guy Mikkelsen said. "I've got every kind of candy, so that's a good thing."
The event will feature two egg hunts: one for kids ages 4 to 6 and one for ages 7 to 9. Kids ages 3 and younger can participate in a bunny trail. The younger children go into the egg-hunt area one at a time and each hunt for the same number of eggs. At the end of the trail, the Easter bunny is waiting to greet them and pose for pictures.
Mikkelsen encourages children to bring their own Easter baskets for the egg hunts, although some baskets will be available at the event for kids who don't have one.
All age groups can participate in a free raffle. Kids ages 3 and younger can enter to win a tricycle. A boy and a girl from two age groups, ages 4 to 6 and 7 to 9, will win a bicycle.
Attendees can also pose with one of eight different photo boards.
This is the fifth year Mikkelsen and the City of Williams have sponsored the event. Mikkelsen said the event celebrates the start of spring.
"Spring is a great time. It's a fun event for them to kind of kick off that next season," he said. "I hope that it brings us together to just celebrate having fun with our children and each other and just come together as a community for something fun."
