The Easter bunny will make his rounds this weekend, leaving behind plenty of colored eggs, some filled with candy and treats, for kids to find.

Many local churches and organizations will conduct their annual Easter egg hunts and events Saturday.

Seymour Parks and Recreation Department director Jeff Vance recommends people show up early to the city’s annual egg hunt at Gaiser Park on Saturday morning.

The Easter bunny will arrive at 9 a.m., and the egg hunt will begin at 10 a.m., “but get here early, because it goes quickly,” he said. “Two minutes and it’s over.”

The city is again partnering with local radio station WZZB and Walgreens to offer the free event, which will include pictures with the Easter bunny and other games and activities.

He said there will be 2,500 eggs filled with candy.

Vance said the egg hunt usually attracts 100 to 150 kids and families.
