Mountain View’s annual Easter Egg Hunt April 8
The annual Easter Egg Hunt in Mountain View will be Saturday, April 8 on the lawn behind host Mercy St. Francis Hospital.
Lots of activities are planned beginning at 1 p.m.
“Our community is working together to make this Easter special,” said chamber director Renee DePriest. “Your kids won’t want to miss the 33-foot tall bounce-style treehouse slide Mercy will have set up. There will be $1 balloon animals. The Mountain View-Birch Tree FFA chapter will be offering free barrel train rides and face painting while Mountain View Family Youth Center will be handing out cotton candy. Children can check out a Mountain View Fire Department truck, visit with Mountain View Police and get their picture taken with the Easter bunny with Landmark Bank’s beautiful backdrop.”
Mountain View Senior Center volunteers will be stuffing over 3,000 eggs for the hunt that takes place at 2 p.m. One lucky child in each age group 1 to 3, 4 to 6, 7 to 9 and 10 to 12 who finds the golden egg will win a bicycle courtesy of West Plains Bank and Southwest Baptist University.
Children will be encouraged to empty the plastic eggs and turn them in for a Mercy bag containing goodies donated by Mountain View businesses and individuals, including Hometown Insurance, A Touch of Whimsy, Angel Garden, Walgreens and Robi Tanner.
“We look forward to this event year after year,” said Cindy Tooley, Mercy St. Francis Hospital administrator. “It’s a great opportunity for families in the community to come together and celebrate the holiday.”
