The north part of the San Ramon Valley is ready for two popular Easter egg hunts this Saturday.
The Rotary Club of Alamo hosts its Easter Egg Hunt and Family Fun Day at the Park from 9-11 a.m. at Livorna Park, and the town of Danville presents Eggstravaganza at the Town Green and Danville Community Center from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The Alamo Rotary event will feature 6,000 eggs, twice as many as last year's egg hunt that drew more than 600 children, Rotary officials said.
Alamo's Easter egg hunt begins promptly at 10 a.m., with kids split into three age groups -- 3 years old and younger, 4-7 years old and 8-10 years old.
The Easter Bunny will also make an appearance, and attendees can check out children's game stations, face-painting by the Monte Vista High School interact club, two balloon people, live music, a performance by the Alamo Elementary School chorus and treats such as coffee, chocolate milk, water and donuts for sale, organizers said.
Down the road in Danville, the town's annual Eggstravaganza will feature Easter egg hunts, arts and crafts, face-painting and other family activities, according to town officials.
The egg hunts, organized by age so each kid has a fair chance to find eight treasure-filled eggs, will occur in two sessions: 9-11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The popular hunts sell out each year, and many age groups were wait-list only as of Thursday afternoon. Required pre-registration is available online.
