Wading toward Easter treats

Pablo Castro, 17-month-old son of Roger Castro and Melissa Kloc, makes a trial Easter Egg run in the baby pool at the Bureau County Metro Center in Princeton.

The Metro Center will have its fourth annual underwater Easter Egg Hunt from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday for all ages, with plastic eggs dropped in both the regular and baby pools. The plastic eggs will be filled with treats, and the child who finds one of two golden eggs will win a basket of Easter prizes. The cost for the children’s Easter Egg Hunt is $5 per child.

From 1 to 2 p.m., the Metro Center will have its first Dog Easter Egg Hunt, with dog treats hidden behind the Metro Center and in Alexander Park. The Easter Bunny will also be available for pictures with the dogs. The cost of the dog treat hunt is $5 or a donation for the Friends of Strays animal shelter.

The Metro Center Easter activities are one of several Easter Egg Hunts planned for this weekend as well as next weekend in various communities throughout Bureau County. Check out the Bureau County Republican for more information on local Easter activities.
