Children throughout Tooele County got the opportunity to participate in the annual tradition of hunting for Easter eggs last week, trying to find the treats that had been hidden for them.
The Stansbury Park Community Association’s annual Easter egg hunt was worth the wait, having been postponed from April 8 to Thursday by the previous weekend’s rain storm. Perhaps energized by having to wait an extra few days, kids took to the shores of Stansbury Lake, eagerly scooping up the brightly colored eggs.
On Friday, it was Tooele City’s turn, as it hosted an Easter egg hunt of its own at the Pratt Aquatic Center.
Kids age 2 and under searched for eggs on the facility’s patio. Those age 4-5, as well as those under 4 feet tall, splashed through the kiddie pool, and those age 6-10 or taller than 4 feet took to the leisure pool to find their goodies.
Participants were then able to stick around for open swim that evening.
