Every child in the county should be able to find an Easter Egg

Big J Manager Dave Johnson, and employees Amanda Gnehm and Jonathan Stockdale load plastic Easter Eggs with candy for communities from Richmond to Grace Idaho. Big J's has been supply eggs for community celebrations for over 30 years.

Easter Egg festivities abound in Cache Valley on Saturday, April 20. Starting at the south end of the valley is the Easter Egg Hunt in Paradise sponsored by the local Lions Club. It will be held at the town square.

Big J’s, located at 190 S. 200 W. in Richmond, stuffs 25,000 Easter Eggs between their two restaurants and distributes them to communities from Richmond up to Grace, ID for Easter.

Before the dash for the eggs, the town traditionally has a bake sale at 9:30 a.m. Participating residents must present two pies. The Paradise Fire Department tastes and judges the pies. They will sample just one of the pies.

“The second pie is auctioned off,” said Alyssa Peterson, town clerk. “We usually have a bunch of pies.”

Nibley City has moved away from the traditional Easter Egg Hunt. The city will be holding an Easter Egg Run Hopstacle Course on April 20 at 9 a.m., located at Virgil Gibbons Heritage Park at 2456 S. 800 West. Registration can be done the night before or at 8 a.m. the morning prior to the event.

“We thought the traditional Easter Egg Hunt is over in minutes and gives little time for the community to interact with each other,” said Chad Wright, the Recreation Director for the city. “We turned it into a fitness activity, a Hopstacle Course where kids chased the Easter Bunny through some obstacles before being rewarded with candy.”
