FORT HALL — The Fort Hall Recreation Department hosted an Easter Drive-Thru for local children ages 10 and under on Saturday, April 3.
Recreation Director Mike Sakelaris said they made 500 Easter bags and within an hour there were about 50 left. There were 110 prize eggs and children had to redeem their prizes inside the gym. Miss Shoshone-Bannock Ontaria Arrow White was present and helped distribute Easter bags.
110 prizes were given out at the Easter Drive-Thru.
Sakelaris said doing Easter this way instead of having the big Easter egg hunt, they eliminated the adult and the 10 and over age categories and it was because they didn’t know how many participants they were going to have.
“This was pretty big, there had to have been over 450 kids, at least. The event ran really smooth, they just drive in and we give them a bag. The hard part was the prizes, putting them in order so that kids can get something,” said Sakelaris.
Gibson's Easter celebration was on Sunday, April 4. A baby reaches for a prize.
