The Easter bunny will be stopping by a day early in Zanesville.

The North Terrace Church of Christ will be hosting an Easter Egg Hunt this Saturday with more than 10,000 eggs filled with goodies for all children in the area.

"It’s open to the public," said Associate Pastor Danny Harp. "We’ve invited the community to come out and share in the event with us. We’ve got a lot to celebrate, given the Easter weekend. Part of that celebration is the Easter Egg Hunt."

Harp said they’ve done Easter egg hunts in the past, but this year the church wanted to open it up to all the children in the area.

"The registration starts at 10 a.m.," he said. "There is no pre-registration. They can register there on site at 10 a.m. At 10 a.m. We’ll have our first hunt, which is for pre-schoolers ages birth – kindergarten. And then at 11 a.m. We’ll have the second hunt for elementary aged kids, first grade through fifth grade."

The egg hunt will take place at Kidsville at Riverside Park this Saturday.

All eggs will have a prize ranging from candy to free Bob Evan’s kids meals and even a bike.
