Easter in the Park 2022 Enjoyed by All

By: Kaycie Kile

This past Saturday, April the 9th, marked yet another merry and bright ‘Easter in the Park’ for Winnfield residents. With clear skies and a much-appreciated breeze throughout the afternoon, folk young and old were able to assemble at Earl K. Long Memorial Park. It was a perfect day for a medley of outdoor entertainments and community kinship to celebrate the coming Easter holiday.

Children of all ages could rummage through what looked more like an ‘Egg Harvest’ than an ‘Egg Hunt.’ With an impressive eleven thousand eggs scattered about the park this year, just waiting for a bucket!

Our spring tidings didn’t stop there! Pictures with the Easter Bunny, face painting, and a cakewalk supplied with freshly baked goods donated from our community were accessible and open to all under the pavilion. Tasty hot dogs and cold refreshments were provided for lunch. The Rotary Club of Winnfield provided and spun sweet cotton candy for anyone who waited patiently in line. Three inflatable activity sets were onsite for safe fun and enjoyment, which helped burn off all the sugar and rid our children of excess energy.

This charming community event was made possible by the participation and donation of our generous sponsors. Thank you all for your time and contributions!
