With a blue sky and the temperature near 60, children enjoyed morning Easter egg hunts Saturday, April 30, in Nisswa, Pequot Lakes, PIne River and Emily. An afternoon hunt took place at Fritz Loven Park in Lake Shore, sponsored by the police department.

At the Nisswa American Legion, Mya Schultz, 4, Nisswa, found the big special Easter egg hidden in the woods while Stetson Melby, 6, Backus, found a littler version. Both received cash prizes.

Pine River's hunt, sponsored by Pine River-Backus area churches and businesses, was at Forbes Park. The Trailside Center at Pequot Lakes Baptist Church hosted that city's event. And the Lions of Emily, Outing and Fifty Lakes sponsored the event at Emily City Hall.
