Photos: An egg-cellent day for Oceanside


The rain couldn’t stop the fun at the Oceanside Department of Community Activities and Kiwanis Club’s Co-sposored egg hunt on March 23rd in the Merle Avenue School gym.

While the event was held indoors, the gym was decorated for springtime fun as upbeat music played in the background, children were eager to participate and over 400 people in attendance.

Each child left with many jellybean-filled colorful eggs and over 100 prizes were awarded to children that found eggs containing a golden ticket. One of the highlights of the day for the children was, of course, the Bunny. Whether it was taking a picture with the long-eared character or simply holding his hand, the children were very excited and it made the day “egg-xtra-special”

Ramalho Tree Service donated cookies for decorating complete with specialty toppings including colorful sprinkles, M&M’s and yummy frosting. The Oceanside children enjoyed creating and eating their one-of-a-kind cookie masterpieces.

The Department of Community Activities recognizes the generosity the Oceanside Kiwanis Club provides for our community. Together with the Oceanside Key Club, Builders Club, K-Kids and various volunteers who all helped to put together the event for all the children that participated.
