The Easter bunny gets an early jump - or is it an early hop - on the holiday, thanks to a little help from the city's first-responders.
The Port Richey Police and Fire departments will host their annual Easter Eggstravaganza from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, April 11, at Waterfront Park, 8119 Old Post Road.
The highlight of the event will be Easter egg hunts for three age groups. For children ages 2-4, the hunt begins at 9:30 a.m. Children ages 5-8 will begin searching at 10 a.m., and those ages 9-12 will get their turn 10:30 a.m.
Before, during and after the Easter egg hunts, there will be other things to see and do. McGruff the Crime Dog will be along, with other famous guests, and there will be Easter candy and other treats for one and all.
Kids and their parents can get to see police and firefighting equipment and vehicles up close, including the city's mini fire truck, traffic control vehicle, police bicycle and water vactor truck.
The event is free. For more information, call 727-816-1919 and speak to police officer Eric Barcelo.
