Since 1976, the Sanchez family and the city of Peoria have worked together to give children the ultimate Easter egg hunt. Children who participated in the past are now bringing their own children and grandchildren to enjoy the activities, hunt for candy and visit with Mr. and Mrs. Bunny.
This hunt will take place on Saturday, March 26 from 8 a.m. to noon in Centennial Plaza, 9875 N. 85th Avenue, located at the Peoria City Hall campus. The location was changed this year due to the Easter holiday falling in March, which coincides with the spring training season at the sports complex. Along with the candy hunts for children, the whole family can enjoy meeting Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, inflatables, games, make and take crafts, petting zoo, pony rides and a scavenger hunt.
