Easter events have a little bit of fun for every bunny

Several hunts on Gig Harbor and Key peninsulas for the two- and four-legged creatures

Staff writerApril 9, 2014 

Holiday Easter is coming on April 20, and that means there are a few ways to get in the spirit of the holiday.

For those who like to include furry, four-legged canines, two pet treat egg hunts will be held during the next two weekends.

Key Peninsula Parks will hold its sixth annual Pet Easter Treat Hunt from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday at Volunteer Park. The free event will feature booths from the Humane Society, Wags N Whiskers 4H and Olympic Bird Fanciers. There will be a costume contest at the end of the program. Non-perishable food donations are encouraged for a holiday food drive.

The Easter Bunny will hold court at the Uptown Gig Harbor Shopping Center fountain. A time to meet the bunny, hunt for eggs and do other holiday-related activities will start at 10 a.m. Saturday.

The Peninsula Metropolitan Parks District also will host a spring egg hunt for pets from noon to 2 p.m. April 19 at Sehmel Homestead Park. Suggested donation is $2 per child. Photos with the Easter Bunny will cost $3.

The egg hunt will run throughout the event so each child has a chance to find a treat.
