Easter Egg Hunt The Rotary Club of Alamo

The Alamo Rotary Club held it's Annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 15, 2017 at Livorna Park in Alamo. Hundreds of people came to the event to play games, listen to some unique music, and of course attend the Easter Egg hunt. Here is how the day went.

The Set-up

From posting outdoor directional signs, to putting up the Rotary signs and banners, putting together the game tents and setting up the games, and face painting and balloon areas, the donut and coffee stand, and planting all the sponsor "flowers" the Alamo Rotary was there, all hands on deck.

The Boy Scouts

The Boy Scouts and the Cub Scouts were responsible for hiding all the Easter Eggs, some 6,500 of them. They also helped patrol the area to keep everyone out until it was time for the hunt.

The Scouts were very creative where and how they hid the eggs, and looked like they having fun!

The East Bay Banjo Club

The musical entertainment was provided by the East Bay Banjo Club who provided toe-tapping, family oriented musical selections which seemed to put a smile on everyone's face. They also handled the MC duties and announcements. The East Bay Banjo Club was founded in 1963 as a nonprofit organization and dedicated to the spirit of playing “happy” banjo music.

The East Bay Banjo Club Meets at Round Table Pizza at 1938 Oak Park Blvd, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523, on Sundays from 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. Come eat some pizza, listen to and/or play happy banjo music

Let the Games Begin

Carnival type games were set-up for folks to play while they waited for the main event. The only difference here was it was free and you could actually win a prize! Volunteers and Boy Scouts ran the booths for Corn Hole, Shuffle Board, Ring Toss, Fat Cats, Crazy Kans and other such games.

Face Painting, Balloons Spin Art & More!

There was a Face Painting station, and a booth where parents could sign-up with Galileo for a fun Kid's Camp during the summer. To get more information on Galileo Kid's Camps: http://www.galileo-camps.com/camp-galileo/ They featured some spin art. The Balloon man was also a great hit and had a long line!

The Easter Bunny

You can't have an Easter Party with out the Easter Bunny. So, one of the main attractions was the bunny who was there to greet all the kids (and some adults as well) and let all the parents take some photos. His capable assistant also handed out some treats.

The Main Event

At 10:00 a.m. sharp, the call was made and the hunt was on. The park was divided into 3 areas by age group. The little ones over by the playground, the 8-10 year olds over in the grass area, and the 12 and over, had to really hunt for the eggs in the tall grass. All the work to set up and hide the eggs and it was over in about 5 minutes. Great event! Kids with full baskets and big smiles.

Happy Easter To All!

The Alamo Rotary Club wants to thank all of our Donors and Sponsors and all of the members and volunteers who helped make this event a great success! This is a great community event and you can see by the pictures how much it was enjoyed.
