On Saturday April 7, the First Presbyterian Church at 7th and Cushman will host an Easter Egg Hunt for kids from 10-11:30 AM. This is an open invitational hunt for toddlers to the 6th grade to find 2,000 eggs hidden throughout the spacious church. Special golden eggs bestow special, secret prizes on the finder. Age groups will hunt seprately. The event also includes professional face painting, crafts, and snacks. Call 452-2406 for more information.
Sunday’s offerings start with the Easter Sunrise Service on the William Ransom Wood Centennial footbridge over the Chena River. Methodists, Presbyterians, Lutherans and more will worship at 7 AM in this short, inspirational celebration in dawn’s calm quiet. The non-denominational service will be accompanied by a choir and will have a warming bus, hot-crossed buns and hot drinks, and porta-potties. Parking is plentiful at either end of the footbridge.
Don’t miss Easter Sunday dinner at The Pomegranate. A Taste of Spain is a fun way to enjoy a hot buffet dinner and sumptuous desserts with other Fairbanksans marking Easter’s promise. The only seating for this authentic fare starts at 1:30. Call 451-7505 for reservations. $34 per person does not include gratuity.
