More than 30 civic groups, businesses and churches will come together to present Anza’s annual Community Easter Egg Hunt at the Lions Club of Anza Valley’s Minor Field gymkhana arena off Kirby Road Saturday, April 8. The yearly free event will be held from noon until 4 p.m.

Children will enjoy prizes, fun and games, with egg hunts organized by age. Last year, 10,000 plastic prize-filled eggs were discovered by the eager hunters. The Easter Bunny is expected to make his hoppy appearance during the festivities.

“This will be another amazing event this year,” organizer Christi James said.

Vendors, game booths, crafts, food and treats are all part of the fun.

Last year, the Easter egg hunt was held at Minor Park in downtown Anza. The organizations that planned the event this year agreed on a change of venue and selected the gymkhana field at 39551 Kirby Road.

“I’m pleased to announce that it’s the usual suspects helping out again this year,” James said.

The Lions Club of Anza Valley, Anza Community Hall, Anza Civic Improvement League, Living Hope Church, Valley Gospel, Anza Valley Christian Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 4-H Club, Hamilton High School, Hamilton Elementary School, About That Horse You Rode in On and many more are pitching in to make this another memorable event.

“Take Easter eggs, mix in cool vendors, include a dash of Easter egg hunts, a big old grip of prizes and what do you get?” organizer Stacy Kuhns asked. “A fantastic Easter event for the kids. Come out and have a great day with us. And volunteering is very appreciated. It takes a village to make these great events happen.”

Vendor spaces are $25. For vendor forms or to volunteer, please contact Stacy Kuhns at
