HOLTVILLE — One year-old Rylee Falcon celebrated her first Easter Egg Hunt with her mother, Michelle Padilla, chasing after the elusive egg on the grounds of the Holtville City Hall the day before Easter, April 4. The city continued their tradition of hosting their annual Easter Egg Hunt under clear skies and cool weather. The event is open to the children of the community, ages ten and under.
“I’m glad she’s able to do it. It feels really good,” said Padilla.
Padilla explained that the Easter Egg Hunt is tradition for her entire family, dating back to the time she and her older sister and younger brother were kids.
The City of Holtville filled over three thousand eggs for the event that started at nine in the morning.
Prizes were handed out for special carrot-shaped eggs with first, second and third place written on the inside and equally dispersed to age groups, four and under, five to six, seven to eight, and nine to ten.
Billy Bingham, a high school junior on the Holtville Varsity Football team, volunteered to dress up as the iconic Easter Bunny, delighting many happy children as they posed for pictures, and made lasting memories.[envira-gallery id=”54524″]
