Easter celebrations set for Atchison

(KAIR)--Although some Easter egg hunts have already been held, this weekend will see additional ones in Atchison as Easter arrives on Sunday.

Two are planned for Saturday, with the first being held that morning at 10:00. The traditional Atchison Easter Egg Hunt will happen at the Atchison Sports Complex, located west of the Atchison Elementary School on North 17th Street and Country Club Road.

The morning hunt is open to children up to 10-years-old, who are welcome to try to find the hidden, lucky eggs and win prizes.

The Easter Bunny will also be in attendance, giving the children a chance to meet the holiday rabbit.

As tradition holds, the event is sponsored by the Atchison Recreation Commission, with assistance from the Atchison Lions Club.

The second, Saturday Easter Egg hunt, in Atchison, is planned to start that morning at 11:30, as sponsored by the Sons of American Legion.

The hunt will be held at American Legion Post #6, located at 1617 South 6th Street.

Another Atchison Easter tradition will continue on Easter Sunday itself, with the 19th Annual Easter Egg Hunt, at Atchison's LFM Park, being held that afternoon.

Running from 1 until 2:00, at the city's northside park, all are invited to take part in the activities, which will then move to Atchison's Memorial Hall, located at 819 Commercial Street. It's there that a talent show/fashion show will be held from 2 until 6:00, with all invited to attend.

For any and all other Easter Egg hunts being held in the local region, go here.
