GYPSUM — The Town of Gypsum’s annual Easter egg hunt is back again this year with thousands of filled eggs, a few surprise golden eggs, activities, crafts and an appearance by the Easter Bunny.

The family-friendly event will be held Saturday at Gypsum Town Center at 10 a.m. and will feature over 3,000 eggs filled with candy and special prizes. The Easter Egg Hunt age divisions include: 1 to 4, 5 to 6 and 7 to 12.

The Easter Bunny will be making a guest appearance, so don’t forget your basket. In addition, Western Eagle County Municipal Recreation District will be doing Eggquatics, an underwater egg hunt for awesome prizes in the following age categories: 0 to 2 and 6 to 8 at 11:30 a.m. and 3 to 5 and 9 to 12 at 11:45 a.m.


For the early risers, the Gypsum Fire Department and the town of Gypsum will host a pancake breakfast before the egg hunt at 9 a.m. Donations to the Gypsum Fire Protection District are welcome.

“The town of Gypsum has created so many great family events,” said Alan Sandberg, publisher of “The Parent’s Handbook.” “The Easter egg hunt has grown tremendously over the years. It is well organized, fun for all and a safe environment for the kids. The event is perfect for ‘The Parents Handbook’ to interact with local, down-valley parents and grandparents.”
