Going against the old adage, the Rotary Club of Alamo is encouraging families to try and put all of their eggs in one basket at the club’s annual Easter Egg Hunt and Family Fun Day at the Park.
Alamo Rotary members are pulling out all the stops for this year’s event -- scheduled for next Saturday (April 20) -- and will be hiding approximately 10,000 eggs in Livorna Park for the hundreds of children anticipated to join the hunt.
In addition to the popular annual Easter Egg Hunt -- which club officials say last year had more than 700 children and 2,500 spectators participate -- the Easter Bunny will be making time from their busy schedule to stop by and take photos with kids and parents alike.
Other activities include carnival games, face painting provided by the Monte Vista High School Interact Club, live music provided by The East Bay Banjo Club and a special performance by the Alamo Elementary School Chorus. The club will also be providing coffee, chocolate milk, water and donuts for sale.
The Easter Egg Hunt itself will take place at 10 a.m. sharp and will be divided into three age groups. One group will be for children three years of age and under; another for children ages four to six; and one for children ages seven to nine.
The Rotary Club of Alamo’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt and Family Fun Day will take place on Saturday at Livorna Park, at the intersection of Livorna Road and Miranda Avenue, Alamo, from 9 to 11 a.m.
Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsors for the event are the Morgan Stanley Bach Group; John Muir Health System; Spectrum Wealth Partners; Thompson Consulting; and Republic Services.
The Rotary Club of Alamo meets on Wednesdays, 12:15 p.m. at Round Hill Country Club, 3169 Round Hill Road, Alamo.
