After having to cancel last year’s event, the Community Easter Event in Winnfield helps the community get back to normal. The event was held Saturday at Earl K. Long park in Winnfield. Children of all ages hunted eight thousand eggs.
The event didn’t stop with just an Easter egg hunt. The Children’s Advocacy Network hosted a cakewalk for children ages 12 and younger. Children won one of many baked goods donated from all over the community. The Family Church provided sack lunches for lunch. The Rotary Club of Winnfield provided freshly spun cotton candy. There were three inflatable activities provided by the Assembly of God Church to help the kids burn off the sugar. And, the First United Methodist Church kept everyone uplifted with praise and worship music.
The weather cooperated beautifully with clear skies and a mild temperature. The Easter Bunny and the Winnfield Chief of Police both made an appearance. “It’s good to see everyone back outside celebrating together. These events are important to our community,” said Winnfield Mayor George Moss
Sponsors of the event were the Winn Parish Chamber of Commerce and Tourism, the City of Winnfield, the Winn Parish Journal, Rotary Club of Winnfield, First United Methodist Church, The Family Church, and Winnfield Assembly of God. Organizers would like to thank the Kiwanis club for helping to clean up the park prior to the event.
