Get the Easter baskets ready and the little ones' hunting skills honed for the annual Possum Kingdom Chamber of Commerce Easter Eggstravaganza, taking place at 3 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, at the chamber, 362 N. FM 2353..
While no one knows for sure how the Easter bunny hides all those eggs every spring, it is guaranteed there will be quite a few at this year's hunt.
The event is free to the public and will feature an Easter egg hunt with a visit from the Easter bunny. Other activities will include sweet treats and prizes.
"We also will have a coloring contest and count the number of eggs challenge for more prizes," said Nikki McKenzie, Eggstravaganza chairwoman.
The hunt will be divided into three age groups. Eggs will be hidden at Possum Gulch behind the chamber with first-, second- and third-place prizes for each group.
"We basically just call it an egg scramble, because it's hard to actually hide that many eggs," explained McKenzie. "The kids are so excited and we have so many more children than when we first started."
The PK Women's Club will also hold a bake sale 1-4 p.m. that day.
