After cancelling their annual Easter Egg hunt last spring due to the pandemic, the Bloomfield Optimist Club is looking forward to hosting the 2021 egg hunt at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 3, at the south end of the Bloomfield City Park.

The event is for four age groups: three and under, four- and five-year-olds, six- and seven-year-olds; and eight- and nine-year-olds.

Eggs will be filled with candy and other prizes and a grand prize will be awarded in each age category.

Lyle Stirling, chairperson of the egg hunt, said the Easter Bunny will be present for the occasion.

The Davis County JOI (Junior Optimist International) Club is preparing the eggs for the event.

In case of rain, the Easter Egg Hunt will be moved to the Pavilion at the Davis County Fairgrounds.

Ron Hewus, Optimist Club president, said the egg hunt would not be followed by kite-flying this year. “The idea of the kite-flying is to give kids an opportunity to work with Optimist Club members and learn how to assemble a kite,” he said. “We can’t do that and maintain social distance.”

Stirling called the egg hunt a good thing and said the club missed not being able host it last year.
