It’s a colorful event that happens every year around this time. Easter egg hunts, that is, and a good handful of churches and organizations are hosting the big springtime blitz.

The fun starts this weekend with three hunts Saturday. The VFW Post 6060, 1433 North Road Street, Ladies Auxiliary annual Easter Hunt, happens 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Photos with Easter Bunny and free food will be on hand. You can call 338-2828 for more information.

Also Saturday, the Brian Center Health and Rehabilitation Center, 1300 Don Juan Road, in Hertford, hosts free the event from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Call 426-5391 for more information.

Also in Hertford Saturday the Children’s Community Easter celebration at New Hope United Methodist Church begins at 11 a.m. on the church grounds. Toddlers through fifth graders will enjoy an afternoon of fun including Children are asked to bring their own baskets.

Over in Shiloh, Camden County Saturday the Riddle Pentecostal Holiness Church, 945 Sandy Hook Road, is hosting a fundraiser, silent auction, egg hunt and games, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. $2 hot dog lunch. Call 394-0455 for more information.

On Friday, April 22 the Whiteville Grove Baptist Church will host an Easter Egg at the church from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Egg hunts, snacks, games and prizes happen at 373 Perrys Bridge Road, Belvedere, Perquimans County. All ages are invited. For more information call 297-2659 or 297-2853.

Next Saturday, on April 23, New Life Assembly, located at 1958 N. Road Street, once again hosts what is arguably the area’s biggest egg hunt.

Three years ago Wendy Manos, wife of the church’s pastor, Clay Manos, touted 10,000 eggs and an estimated 1,000 people at their egg hunt. This year they anticipate somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,500 folks, and have stuffed 30,000 eggs with goodies.

Like the last several years, the church gets together the week before the hunt and stuffs the eggs. Manos says it’s a really big effort, but the group has a lot of fun, and it’s all for a good cause.

The good cause is the community. The church not only provides this really big egg hunt, but also information on community outreach programs.

Some of the outreach programs promoted will

be Angel Food, a program aimed at assisting families with groceries through bulk food purchases and affordable pricing. There will also be information on their weekly Divorce Care program, their Grief Care program and more.

The event happens at 2 p.m. There is plenty of overflow parking. Call 335-9550 for more information.

Also next Saturday, Freedom Baptist Ministries, 768 Pitts Chapel Road in Elizabeth City, will hold their hunt from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Free hotdogs and puppet show at 11:30 a.m.

Open Door Church in Edenton is apparently challenging New Life’s claim for the area’s biggest egg hunt — you can decide. They’re sponsoring what they are billing as eastern North Carolina’s largest Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 23 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the American Legion Fairgrounds in Edenton.

Egg hunt starts at 11 a.m. Admission is free; event is open to children from infants through age 12. Over 10,000 Easter eggs are supposed to be given away at the hunt. There will also be hot dogs, cotton candy, bouncy houses, a mechanical bull, and much more. Anyone interested in more information can call 482-7927.

Finally, in case you missed all the Easter weekend fun, on Monday, April 25, an Easter Egg Hunt from noon to 3 p.m., will happen at Missing Mill Park in Hertford. Sponsored by H.E.L.P.
