PIMA – The town of Pima will hold its fourth annual Easter Extravaganza this Saturday, April 16, starting with a free cowboy breakfast at 8 a.m.
The event takes place at the Pima Ball Fields next to the Vard Lines Memorial Roping Arena and will feature three separate age group areas for the egg hunt; newborn to 3 years old, 4 – 8, and 9 – 12. At each area, there will be special prize eggs, with a grand prize of a bicycle for each age group donated by Walmart.
Pima Town Council member Sherrill Teeter organized the event. She said the town ordered 5,000 eggs, and the Graham County Chamber of Commerce donated 1,000 as well. Half the eggs will be filled will candy, and half with toys.
In addition to the egg hunts and free breakfast, there will also be an Easter Bunny Coloring Contest with prizes for the winners. And the big bunny himself will be on hand to pose for pictures.
“I would like people to come out and encourage town unity and get to know your neighbors and have fun,” Teeter said. “I mean, free breakfast, egg hunt, go home and enjoy the rest of your day. Who can beat that, right?”
So, be sure to come on out to the Pima Ball Fields on Saturday, April 16, starting with breakfast at 8 a.m., followed by the egg hunts at 9 a.m. for some good food and community fun.
