College Station Easter Celebration

Saturday, April 8, 2017

9:30 a.m to noon

The College Station Easter Egg Hunt has been a long standing tradition hosted by the Police Department. From humble beginnings in 1982, the Easter Celebration has evolved into one of the most highly anticipated events of the spring. The Bush Library and Museum began partnering with the police department in 1999, adding activities to the event modeled after the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

Activities will include games, face painting, an Easter egg hunt, egg roll, egg toss, complimentary refreshments and photos with the Easter Bunny. Specially designed wooden White House-style Easter Eggs are given to the children. Local merchants contribute prizes to give away, and a boy's and a girl's bicycle and helmet will be awarded in each of the three age categories: 3 and under, 4-5 and 6-7. Parents must register their children to win.

The day's schedule is as follows:
9-9:50 a.m.  Late registration for the door prizes 
9:30 a.m.     Games, grab bags, refreshments, balloon twisting open
9:50 a.m.     Easter Bunnies arrive
