Easter egg hunts, events at Lake Tahoe
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif.— Easter is right around the corner, and the South Shore is getting in the spirit with plenty of activities perfect for the whole family.
The fun is beginning with Heavenly Village’s 3rd annual Community Easter egg hunt.
The annual Easter egg hunt has been a huge success in the village each year allowing hundreds of kids 10 and under the chance to grab their share of the 15,000 plastic toy and candy filed eggs.
Additionally, multiple eggs contain cash, equaling out to $1,000 total.
“The annual Easter egg hunt is one of our favorite events of the year,” said CEO of The Shops at Heavenly Village Gary Casteel. “We see visitation from across the nation as well as local. The egg hunt is also one of our largest day trip events of the year from our valuable neighbors from the east and west. I can’t stress enough how much we appreciate their visitation. Hope to see you in the village.”
The cost to participate in the hunt is $5 per child, and tickets are limited. All proceeds will go to a local charity.
Children can also enjoy brunch with the Easter Bunny before and after the event at Fire and Ice for just $20. For the adults $14.99 bottomless mimosas are also available.
Additionally, a Build a Bunny station will be setup in the village for just $15 each, and the Easter Bunny will be on site for a meet and greet.
Club 100 will also be on site for a little warm up for the kids prior to charging the egg hunt grounds.
