Westside Community Center to offer Easter egg hunt, movie March 31
Families are invited to join an Easter egg hunt (2:15 p.m.) and watch an animated Easter Bunny movie (“Hop” - 3:20 p.m.) at the Westside Community Center Saturday, March 31.
The free offerings are part of a three-event day at the center, and people can attend any or all.
Before the Easter-themed happenings, from 1 to 2 p.m., will be a performance/presentation in the library's "Spring Break" series: Peter Davison Loco-Motion: The Science & Circus Arts, which will feature juggling, unicycling, balancing and acrobatics.
The center is at 1628 W. Bijou St. Free off-street parking is available off the 17th Street alley north of Bijou.
New this year, the double-Easter activities are part of a continuing effort by the center to “have more yearly community events hosted by WCC,” elaborated marketing coordinator Aundrea Fuller. “We will be hiding over 1,100 plastic eggs, filled with candy or small toys. There will also be various types of crafts after the hunt and before the movie.”
The egg hunt is geared “for all ages” but with some eggs set out "in plain view" for smaller children, Fuller said. The activity is planned outdoors and will go on “rain, shine or snow,” a flyer explains.
"Hop," which was released in 2011, will be projected on a large screen inside the center's Hughes Hall. The flyer adds that “metal folding chairs are provided, but you are welcome to bring your comfy movie-watching items ((lawn chairs, bean bags, stuffed animal, blankets etc.).”
A concession stand inside the hall will sell food and drinks.
