The real easter events
Several wabash valley easter events have been revived this spring... although many have new twists!
"remnant church" in terre haute usually offers a massive community easter egg hunt that draws in thousands of people.
Not this year.
Instead... the church offered this easter drive-thru at the wabash valley fairgrounds.
Volunteers unloaded 9-and-a-half tons of candy into trucks.
People were also able to get food.
A church leader says this is a great way to reach people ahead of easter sunday.
The "northside community church" also offered a drive-thru easter egg hunt.
Families simply drove through the parking lot to grab a bag full or holiday goodies.
"it's nice to get out, get out of the house and i think people are really enjoying that."
The church is hosting an outdoor easter egg hunt tomorrow afternoon.
This is happening at 3 in the afternoon and is free.
10-thousand eggs will be hidden for kids through 5th grade to find.
Kiddos filled deming park in terre haute for the city's annual easter egg hunt.
This was actually 2-hunts.
One for kids 2 to 4-years old... and another for kids 5 to 10-years old.
This is our first easter egg hunt since the pandemic started.
And the crowd turn out was amazing.
I was really impressed with how people tried to social distance, not as many masks as i'd liked to have seen but however it was a great turn out.
It seems to be a great event as you can see."
Prize eggs were hidden for each hunt.
Families could also take a ride on the "bunny express" for just a dollar.
And... don't forget... an annual easter egg hunt in vincennes is happening next weekend.
The "vincennes parks and recreation department" and "kiwanis" event is happening at "gregg park" saturday.
Registration starts at 10:30 in the morning and the hunt starts at 11.
Remember... mask are required and social
