Easter Egg Hunt Returns

The rain has parted and family and friends are invited to join the City of La Mirada’s annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 8 from 9 to 11 a.m. at La Mirada Regional Park. Families will enjoy a variety of fun-filled activities including crafts, games, music and of course, photos with the Easter Bunny. 

The Kiwanis Club of La Mirada will be on site taking the chill out of the morning. 

Get there early as they will be serving their world-famous low-cost pancake breakfast before the event. After the recent cancellation of the fishing derby at the lake, the club has been itching to get out and serve their grub.

It's a great way to grab a bite and support the club.

The Easter Egg Hunt begins at 10:15 a.m. and continues throughout the morning for ages 10 and younger. 

For more information, call the La Mirada Community Services Department at (562) 943-7277.
