There will plenty of eggs to find for any child through sixth grade at Portales Calvary Baptist Church’s annual Easter Egg Hunt. But the event is being held at a different location than usual.
The hunt starts at 1 p.m. Saturday at the New Mexico Baptist Children’s Home. The church’s Easter Egg Hunt is usually done at the Roosevelt County Fairground, but this year there was a scheduling conflict.
Brad Morgan, pastor at the Portales Calvary Baptist Church, is coordinating the event with 60 volunteers from his church and around the community.
“The event is more than just hunting for eggs. There will be bouncy houses, crafts and a drama,” Morgan said.
Morgan said there will be 7,000 eggs for the children to find on the lawn of the Children’s Home, but the hunt will be separated into different age groups.
The crafts will be T-shirts they get to design themselves. There will also be five bouncy houses, weather permitting.
The drama will be a narration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ done by the church.
“It will be a lot of fun and I hope many kids will come out and have a good time,” Morgan said.
