PIMA – The third annual town of Pima Easter Extravaganza will be held Saturday, April 10, at the Vard Lines Memorial Roping Arena, baseball field, and Carsen Gary Brown Brown Field. The town didn’t hold the event last year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

This is a free event for all ages and will begin with a breakfast from 7:30-8:30 a.m., followed by the egg hunt at 9 a.m.

Thousands of eggs will be there for the picking, and the event will also include a coloring contest, arts and crafts, and a visit from the Easter Bunny. 

Due to the short notice of Governor Doug Ducey’s Executive Order lifting restrictions on public gatherings, there will not be a family rodeo this year.

“We apologize for the short notice, but are thankful that we can have an event and get back to what we consider normal,” the town administration said in a social media post.

The event is free to all, however, if you are feeling sick or are in a compromised state, protect yourself and others and stay home.

“Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to seeing everyone (who) can make it,” said the town administration.
