Easter Bunny Mak­ing Its Rounds

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - West Oahu Islander -

The Easter Bunny is on its way to town and will make an ap­pear­ance at Aloha Sta­dium Swap Meet and Mar­ket­place and Sal­va­tion Army’s Egg-cit­ing Easter Cel­e­bra­tion from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 13 at the North Plaza (gates 6 and 7).

Keiki will have a chance to get a photo with the Easter Bunny, as well as par­tic­i­pate in a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties that in­clude face paint­ing, in­flat­a­bles, train rides, and arts and crafts.

Eggs also will be hid­den around the plaza — and kids can col­lect them to win prizes. To pre-reg­is­ter for the egg hunt, visit eventbrite.com/e/egg-cit­ing-easter-cel­e­bra­tion-tick- ets-11027516599. Three cat­e­gories are avail­able: ages 4 and un­der, 5 to 9, and 10 to 12. The hunt is limited to 500 chil­dren.

For the adults, the swap meet will op­er­ate as usual.

Par­tic­i­pants are en­cour­aged to bring a do­na­tion of canned food, which will ben­e­fit the Sal­va­tion Army.

For more in­for­ma­tion on this and other events at Aloha Sta­dium, call 483-7133.

For more Easter fun, Honolulu Board of Wa­ter Sup­ply and the Friends of Halawa Xeriscape Gar­den host “Dec­o­rate an Egg, the Xeriscape Way Work­shop and Easter Egg Hunt” from 10:30 a.m. to noon April 19. Dur­ing the work­shop, keiki can dec­o­rate eggs with leaves, flow­ers and other xeriscape plants found in the gar­den. Along the way, they also will learn how these plants can help to con­serve wa­ter.

It all ends with an egg hunt, where keiki will search the grounds for prize-filled eggs. Chil­dren must be ages 2-12 and ac­com­pa­nied by an adult.

Par­tic­i­pants should bring four to six boiled or blown eggs to dec­o­rate, a bas­ket to col­lect eggs and a brown­bag lunch.

Ad­vanced reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired by 2 p.m. April 18, or un­til all spa­ces are filled. Fee is $5. Friends of Halawa Xeriscape Gar­den mem­bers are el­i­gi­ble for a dis­count, depend­ing on their level of mem­ber­ship. To reg­is­ter, call 748-5363 or email work­shops@hbws.org.
