Bomb squad builds beeping Easter eggs for visually impaired kids

Lake Chicot State Park: The park, on Arkansas 257 near Lake Village, hosts an Easter Egg Hunt with candy-filled eggs and a prize egg per age group for children 10 and under, 3 p.m. Sunday. Children must bring their own baskets. The Egg Hunt was separated into two sections: one side for toddlers and the other for older children.

Parks and Recreation staff are gearing up for another big event in Oliver Community Park starting at 10 a.m.

Deaton noted the egg hunt is non-competitive, which means there is no grand prize for getting the most eggs - just "bragging rights", he said. Live music, face painting, a meet and greet with the Easter bunny, and other activities are similarly complimentary.

With this being Holy Week, folks around the world are preparing to celebrate Easter - and globally, there are a number of cultural traditions that mark this special time of year.

"It will be like Disneyland". Don't forget to stop and say hello to the Farm's Easter bunnies, Clover and Thumper. The hunts will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 31 and attendees are asked to walk to their closest event, if possible, since parking will be limited. There will be three separate egg hunts based on age: under 5, 5 to 9, and 10 and over for the more advanced scavengers. Parents and guardians are free.

At 2 p.m., Wesley Chapel is holding its annual Easter Egg-stravaganza at the former Dawsett Elementary School site on Dawsett Avenue.

"We're taking plastic eggs and putting little lights in them", Jenny Wolfrom, director of advancement and engagement, said about this year's plan. To make an order, or for more information, visit the Donalda Ag Society's Facebook page. It's from 11 a.m.to 3 p.m.at the church, 5501 N. Maize Road, Maize.

So where is the nearest egg hunt to you, and when are they happening?

Starkville First United Methodist Church will hold a church-wide Easter egg hunt at 10 a.m. for two-year-olds through third graders. We wanted to be a blessing and not make problems so having said that we have made a decision to not move forward with East Missoula Easter Egg Hunt. We are very excited to partner with National Trust and National Trust for Scotland again and with RPM's great support, organise more than 300 Cadbury Easter Egg Hunts across the UK.

It's a far cry from the first years when the Easter Bunny hid 1,000 eggs and 50 children set out to find them.
