Easter Egg Hunt & Pancake Breakfast Sat., March 28th from 9:00-11:00 am
The annual Kirtland Easter Egg Hunt and Pancake Breakfast will be held on Saturday, March 28th. The outdoor hunt begins promptly at 10 a.m. for Kirtland children age 10 and younger (adult chaperones required). Kids should bring Easter baskets (or a bag) to collect eggs. A prize basket is awarded to the child that finds the Golden Egg. In case of inclement weather, eggs are handed out indoors on a first-come, first-served basis until they are gone. The event is free and registration is not required.
Join us before or after the Easter Egg Hunt for a visit with the Easter Bunny, live rabbits, games, and crafts. The Kirtland Seniors host an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast (for a nominal fee) from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
