IMPERIAL — Hordes of children big and small combed Eager Park here Saturday for a chance to grab some colorful, plastic eggs with goodies inside during one of three Easter egg hunts in the Imperial Valley. Imperial’s “eggcellent” event was put on in a joint effort by Imperial Community Church and Imperial First Southern Baptist Church, said the Revs. Albert Sanchez and Jeff Moody. “This is what it’s all about, getting out in the community and getting families outside of the walls of the church because the experience is all about people,” Moody said.

HOLTVILLE - Bill Livsey, Holtville Chamber of Commerce president, sees Holtville's annual Easter egg hunt from an entirely different perspective, the Easter bunny's perspective, that is. “A few years back I got the call from Dana Hawk, the coordinator of the hunt, and she asked me to be the Easter bunny because her guy backed out. Some of the kids run up to me and hug me after picking up the eggs, others are cautious around me. In a sense the...

BRAWLEY - Parents and children streamed into Pat Williams Park on Saturday morning in excited anticipation of the city's annual Easter egg hunt. Some carried grocery bags, others had brightly-colored pails and others had intricately woven baskets, but everyone had their eyes on the prize of candy and eggs scattered throughout the park. “It gives the kids something to do in the community. They don't have to go out of town to celebrate Easter,” Brawley Recreation Supervisor Pat Dorsey said.

I am trying to find where if any Easter egg hunts are happening this weekend. I don?t know where to take my kids.

CALEXICO - Hundreds of excited children and families stormed the Calexico High School football field Sunday for the annual Calexico Desert Valley Bandits Easter egg hunt. It's the third year for the non-profit club to be hosting the hunt, President Tony de la Paz said, although the community has had it for decades. “We do it because it's a tradition, and we didn't want to lose the tradition,” he said. “A lot of parents were here as children, and they want that tradition to go on for their kids.” Club members and volunteers helped scatter roughly 9,000 eggs over the course of a couple hours before the event, and in minutes, the eager, giggling children scooped them up in baskets and bags.

Valley residents celebrate Easter in a wide variety of ways but for most, it's a chance to bring family closer. “It's getting together with family, reminding them that Jesus died for us, and we should be grateful, not just now but all the time,” Calexico resident Soledad Salazar said. “The love we share means a lot, because Jesus wants us to love each other as our brothers and sisters.” The Christian holiday marks the resurrection of Jesus after being crucified, and the end of the Lenten season.

Bucklin Park in El Centro seems to be one of the preferred spots for families in the Valley to spend their Easter holiday. Judith Muñoz comes with her family every year to barbecue. Especially after the 2010 earthquake, she said that thinking you can lose everything you have gives a new meaning to spending time with the family. “It also gives you an excuse to make food,” Muñoz said jokingly. The spaces at the park are available on a first-come, first-served basis. People get there early to secure a spot.

HOLTVILLE - The loudspeaker crackled slightly as the call came out. “Are you ready?” “Yeah,” answered back the voices of hundreds of children. “Ready, set, go.” The kids flooded Holt Park, each rushing forward to grab the most eggs at the event that has been going on for decades. Holtville held its annual Easter in the Park, inviting children to hunt for eggs hidden throughout the park in front of City Hall. This year the Chamber of Commerce hid 3,000 eggs, more than the 2,000 used last year, said Dana Hines Gularte, chamber executive secretary.

Easter came just a couple of days early to McKinley Elementary School with kindergartners running around during an Easter egg hunt Friday. Every year teacher Susana Gilkinson celebrates Easter with her students, but this is the first time that she had a real Easter egg hunt. And though fun, the egg hunt was also a challenge for Gilkinson, who wore bunny ears and was also dressed fully in pink. “It's really hard to discipline today,” Gilkinson said with a smile. Nobody listens to the Easter bunny, she said.
