Easter will fall on this Sunday and there are several pre-easter egg hunts happening in Sheridan County on Saturday in accordance with the holiday.
The Zanesfield United Methodist Church offers the festivities Friday, with registration starting at 7:30 p.m. and the hunt with 1,100 eggs stuffed with candy and toys at 8 p.m.in the back field behind the 2880 Main St. property in the village. The festivities also will include the Jelly Bean Jamboree, Funny Bunny Games, whisker painting and photos with the Easter Bunny. The event is sponsored by the Chatham Merchants' Association, and includes eggs filled with treats and jelly beans, and one prize egg that entitles the bearer to an Easter basket filled with goodies.
The Shoppes @ Piedmont - 10-11 a.m., 1265 S. Cotner Blvd.
The drop is scheduled for 10 a.m., when a helicopter will fly over open space in the park and drop 15,000 marshmallows - not to be eaten, but instead turned in for prizes.
The Easter egg hunt is free to the public and sponsored by the Boys & Girls Club of the Mountain Communities. The egg hunts will be divided by age and will occur every 20 minutes for the kid's safety. The church will also hold worship services at 6:30 p.m. April 15, and at 6:30 a.m., 8:15 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. April 16.
The Easter bunny then made a brief appearance, greeting the children and posing for pictures before moving on to his next appointment. For more information, visit OaklandCountyParks.com.
