The Story of Us. Together, we make great things happen.
EVENTS for children in the North County By Heather Young Spring is coming and that means Easter isn’t far behind. Easter falls on Sunday, April 1 and means that leading up to the Christian holiday, there are Easter egg hunts and other activities open to the community. While there used to be more large-scale city-sponsored events, those have given way to more smaller, organization- and business-sponsored events. Paso Robles Main Street will host a visit with the Easter bunny on Saturday, March 24, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the holiday house in Downtown City Park. Bring the entire family for a free visit with the Easter basket. Bring your camera and get a free Easter egg. Easter Egg Hunt Etiquette: It's always fun to take the kids to Easter egg hunts, but it's a bummer when someone ruins the fun by not playing fair. So here are a few rules of etiquette to make these fun for everyone: 1. These events are meant to be fun 2. Adults should stay on the sidelines unless the child is a baby or young toddler. 3. Encourage your children to participate with other children’s searches, and even help other children find eggs for themselves.
