Peninsula Center Mall hosts Easter Bunny & prize filled egg hunt,

For the second year in a row, thanks to the Bias family owners of the Peninsula Center Mall the Easter Bunny made a pre-holiday appearance on the Peninsula. Saturday, April 4th families started lining up at 11:00am for photos and to prepare for the prize winning Easter egg hunt at the Mall. The renovated mall was also host to a 4-H Petting Zoo which was less frightening to the kiddos than the six foot rabbit. “We had the Easter Bunny out front to pose for some great family photos along with the face painter and balloon maker. Then at the left side of the Mall there were four of the cutest little piglets you’ve ever seen for the kids to visit hold and pet, then at noon the egg hunt got underway with a special room for the one to three year olds and then all other children were turned loose in the Mall to find all the other eggs,” said Brianne Steed, event organizer and one of the family owners of the Mall. According to Steed over 55 prizes were inside the 1,500 eggs that the Easter Bunny had hidden throughout the mall.

The eggs contained blue prizes, red prizes and golden prize certificates that could be claimed from the prize table. All eggs with prizes were found and turned in by the more than 200 kids that participated said Steed. All prizes were donated by the Bias family.
