A fluffy-tailed visitor will be in Yadkinville this weekend.
The Town of Yadkinville will host a community Easter egg hunt and visits with the Easter bunny at Yadkinville Community Park on March 23 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The event is free to the public.
The event is a joint effort between the town and Gaye Baity, owner of Third Branch Café and Branch Bakery.
Paul Lowe, the town’s director of development and planning, is heading up the event. He said that it’s a way to give back to the taxpayers in the community.
“We’re always looking to have more events in town,” Lowe said. “People pay their taxes here, so we want to provide them an event here at home so they don’t have to drive to another community to spend time with family and friends.”
The Easter egg hunt will be split into age groups of children up to three, ages four to six, ages seven to nine and ages 10 to 12. Lowe said that this will allow a fair egg hunt for all of the age groups.
Some eggs will be filled with candy and a boy and girl prize will be available for the child who finds the most eggs from each age group.
Children will also have the opportunity to have a meet and greet with the Easter bunny. Parents may take their own photos of their children with famous bunny at no charge.
The event will be run by volunteers from the Town of Yadkinville, Downtown Business Association, Yadkin Family YMCA and the Branch Bakery.
The town is still looking for volunteers to assist at the event. Call Paul Lowe at 679-8732 to learn more about volunteering.
