Hippity, hoppity, Easter time is here.

Starting Friday, kids will have two days of hunting Easter eggs. Lamun-Lusk-Sanchez Texas State Veterans Home will be celebrating its 10th annual Easter egg hunt and First Church of the Nazarene will be hosting its third annual egg hunt.

“We always have a great turnout and we are expecting the same thing again this year,” said Emily Carrillo, interim activities director at Lamun-Lusk-Sanchez.

Lamun-Lusk-Sanchez will be providing refreshments, hot dogs and ice cream from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Friday. The egg hunt — thousands of eggs have been prepared — will begin at 11:30 a.m. Three age divisions will be represented: 1-2 years old; 3-6 and 7-12.

“We are continuing our tradition of hosting the hunt on Good Friday,” Carrillo said. “Schools are out that day and that is one of the things that allows us to continue that tradition.”

First Church of the Nazarene will continue its tradition Saturday. Two age groups — 2-5 and 6-10 — will be hunting eggs in the fields beside the Old Settler's Pavilion at Comanche Trail Park at 11 a.m.

“This is something we wanted to expand beyond our church,” Pastor Calvary Callender said. “This is a gift from our church to the community.”

Youngsters will have an opportunity to hunt for 30,000 eggs Saturday, enjoy inflatables, free hot dogs, face painting and visit with the Easter Bunny. There will also be bicycles and big Easter baskets given away during the event.

Last year, there was approximately 500 children attending, plus their parents. This year, Pastor Callender said he is expecting the same, if not more.

Both events are free and open to the public.
