Things will be hopping in Reynoldsburg this Easter season.

Kids can have breakfast with the Easter Bunny at Reynoldsburg’s fourth annual Breakfast with the Bunny on April 4 from 9-11 a.m. at the Senior Center, 1520 Davidson Drive. Cost is $20 per family of four and $2 for each additional member. You must pre-register as space is limited. Call the Reynoldsburg Parks and Recreation at 322-6806 or visit www.ci.reynoldsburg.oh.us.

Also the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Reynoldsburg Post 9473 will hold its annual Easter egg hunt for city residents ages 10 and under on April 4 at 11:30 a.m. in Huber Park by the Senior Center, 1520 Davidson Drive.

Reynoldsburg Parks and Recreation Director Donna Bauman said Breakfast with the Bunny has attracted between 110-125 participants the past two years.

“Families must pre-register for the breakfast,” said Bauman. “Walk-ins will not be accepted. Participants can register online through Blue Sombrero, mail a registration form with check or money order, or stop in and register in person Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and pay by cash, check, credit card or money order.”

In addition to a breakfast of pancakes, sausage, fruit, juice, milk, and coffee, Bauman said children will be able to color eggs and complete two crafts. Families may bring a camera for a picture with the Easter Bunny and there will also be a photographer on hand.

Anna Clendenen, of Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Reynoldsburg Post 9473, said the egg hunt will feature 3,500 plastic eggs that will contain candy and other extra surprises.

“The egg hunt is a hometown thing that the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Reynoldsburg Post 9473 has been holding for 30 years,” said Clendenen.

The egg hunt will be broken into four age groups: ages 0-2 (kids in this age group can be assisted by their parents); ages 3-4; ages 5-7; and ages 8-9.

Clendenen said the Reynoldsburg Lions Club assists the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Reynoldsburg Post 9473 with financial donations for the egg hunt and that First Service Federal Credit Union is providing some of the surprise prizes. Additionally, the Reynoldsburg Church of the Nazarene donated 1,000 eggs to the hunt and will also provide some surprise prizes and volunteers for the event.

Bauman said the Easter events are good for the community.

“I believe events such as these bring the entire family together and promote community building because they give families the opportunity to interact with other community members,” said Bauman. “Families can enjoy a meal together for a nominal cost, have their picture taken and then enjoy the egg hunt sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW Post 9473. Events like these also provide opportunities for local organizations to volunteer for Parks and Recreation activities.”
