Easter Bunny brings bounty to kids of the Peninsula

The Easter Bunny brought an abundance of fun activities to Soldotna on Easter Saturday. An egg hunt at “The Market” sponsored by Mountain Mama Originals, Where It’s At and Artzy Junkin, featured over 900 eggs filled with candy and prizes to be found. Separated areas for age groups 1-3 years, 4-6 & 7-12 assured that all hunters had a fair chance to collect the goodies and win a prize. Where it’s At, also featured coloring of locally grown eggs for youngsters along with hot homemade lentil soup. Additionally The Market offered an Easter egg coloring contest for the first time this year with the winners being Hudson Marshall in the 1-3year-old age group, Titton in the 4-6 year old group and Taylor winner of the 7-10 age category. Each won a Tiedye Shirt made by Drunken Forest Design.

Meanwhile, over at the Peninsula Center Mall the Easter Bunny himself was available for family photo ops along with a coloring table for kids and face painting. “Our incredible community came together for our third annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Mall that started at noon with kids collecting a thousand some plastic eggs with goodies, followed by free face painting, free coloring, free popcorn and free photos with the Easter Bunny it was a great event for our community,” said Stephanie Bias, one of the PC Mall family of owners. The PC Mall has continued its makeover with the addition of unique businesses like Northern Simulators where you can have a virtual hunt with your bow and arrow or a game of golf on one of the world’s most beautiful and challenging courses. “The Mall is doing incredible while the face life has happened on the outside, inside the vendors are coming together to sponsor community events like this to bring families into the mall and experience our clean and safe environment,” said Bias. Additionally, coming in April is a new mystery restaurant to be called “The Pallet.” “All I can say right now is that the chef is well known and fantastic, he is expecting a soft opening in April with a surprise grand opening later in the month that will knock everyone’s socks off as they drive by the mall this summer not to mention their taste buds,” said Bias.
