PIMA — Easter may have been last week, but that doesn’t mean Pima children have to miss out on the fun of an egg hunt.

The town will conduct its free Pima Easter Extravaganza Saturday on the ballfields of the Vard Lines Roping Arena. Council member Sherrill Teeter said there will be more than 7,000 eggs plastic eggs filled with goodies for the children to hunt.

“We’re going to do the egg hunt (but) we’re not going to have the prizes this year for obvious reasons — lack of time and planning — but we did want to try and give our kids something to do, even if it is a little bit late,” she said.

Mayor C.B. Fletcher said the delay was caused by the uncertainty of the pandemic, and as soon as gathering limitations were lifted, the town placed its order for eggs.

“I’m hoping for next year to go back to our little rodeo, coloring contest (and) games. I would love to go back to that but, this year, no way,” Teeter said.

The event will start with a community breakfast taking place from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. The youth egg hunt will start at 9 a.m.
