Annual Easter Egg Hunt Sunday

-A +A
The Rocklin Firefighters’ Association has presented the city of Rocklin’s annual Easter Egg Hunt for more than 40 years. The event was started by former Assistant Fire Chief Vince Lopez and is traditionally held on Easter Sunday at Johnson-Springview Park. Last year more than 1,300 children ranging from infants to age 10 and their families attended. Children hunt for specially colored eggs, and receive prizes for locating the “specially colored and numbered” Easter eggs. The Rocklin Firefighters’ Association in conjunction with the Fire Department will prepare and color 450 dozen – 5,400 eggs in preparation for this year’s event. The eggs will be cooked and colored from 7 a.m. until noon on Saturday behind Fire Station 1 on Rocklin Road. This year more than 300 special prizes have been acquired by the association to hand out to the six different age groups. The prizes have been obtained by the association through a long-standing partnership with local businesses. Once again Safeway, Rocklin Barber Shop, NuCal Foods, and Wal Mart have been instrumental in helping the firefighters obtain the eggs and prizes. Each of these business partners has supported the Firefighters’ Association for more than 20 years. This Easter Egg Hunt is one of the major events sponsored annually by the Firefighters Association to benefit the children of Rocklin and surrounding communities. The hunt will begin promptly at 1 p.m. and will be finished within three to four minutes as the children race around the special areas looking for eggs. ________ Know and Go: What: Annual Easter Egg Hunt When: 1 p.m., Sunday Where: Johnson-Springview Park Hosted by Rocklin Firefighters Association
