Spring is in the air and a group of “egg-cellent” moms called Our Little Village is hopping into action for their free 4th annual Easter Egg Hunt this weekend.

This Saturdays egg hunt at the Childrens Memorial Park is going to be the biggest one yet.

From egg hunts to pictures with the Easter bunny, you wont want to miss your chance of finding some of the 7,000 eggs they stuffed with candy and prizes.

Alicia Mujica, a member of Our Little Village, says theyre expecting nearly 200 kids to show up.

In previous years, they saw about half of that.

This is gonna be the best one in town,” Mujica said.

Egg hunting isn’t the only thing kids can do. There will be plenty of activities available.

A few locals teens volunteered to face paint and do stencils.

Gift cards were donated by several local businesses for children, including Pams Fizzy Factory, a spa for kids located inside of Tucson Mall.

Theyre doing a mobile bus, theyre bringing out,” said Mujica. “Theyre going to be offering pedicures and different spa-type things to kids.

Thousands of eggs are waiting to be found by lucky kids like Kennedy, whose mom is a member of Our Little Village.

Aside from telling me she only wants to find just six eggs, I asked what shes most looking forward to this weekend.

Jacqueline: Are you excited for Easter?

Kennedy: Yep!

Jacqueline: What are you excited about?

Kennedy: Picking up some Easter eggs and seeing whats inside it.

Mujica tells me it takes a village to organize these events, but they do it to see big smiles on kids’ faces.

Wild Katz is another local business that offered free play-time and then Timeless Play,” Mujica said. “They offered some drop-off playtime as well.

Our Little Village isnt short of eggs, but happily welcomes volunteers as well as any type of Easter donations for kids.

The event will be at the Children’s Memorial Park on 4875 N. 15th Place and starts at 10 a.m.
