Easter in Oakland




Neal Halvorson, Director of the Oakland Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts declared the 2015 Oakland Parks and Recreation Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday a “huge success.” Approximately 3,000 eggs were placed on the fields for the youngsters to gather into their Easter baskets. Halvorson said not only was he happy for the large turnout, but of the three years he has held the event at West Junior High, this year’s weather was the best. The Easter Bunny arrived in an Oakland Fire Truck just in time to mingle with those who attended and preside over the hunt for Easter eggs for three different age groups, 0-3, 4-7 and 8-10- year-olds. Bouncy houses were available for the children, as well as face painting by the Young Champions. Paul Billingsley of Level Cut Lawn Care & Landscape sponsored the Golden Egg prizes, which were age-appropriate bicycles.
