TRUCKEE, Calif. — Easter is quickly approaching Truckee-Tahoe and community members all over are ready to celebrate. 

For those looking to celebrate Easter with a Sunday service and an egg hunt can head over to Tahoe Forest Church at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, April 9, for a special service and an Easter egg hunt. 

Children 5 and under and 6 and up can participate in two different hunts for over 3,000 eggs for free. Coffee and refreshments will also be provided for free. 

The hunt will begin at 9:30 a.m. sharp. 

“We are excited to offer this free event to the town in a space large enough to welcome the Tahoe community to hear the Easter message,” said lead pastor Terrence Sutton. “We know there are a lot of people visiting Truckee at this time, so we’re thrilled to offer a convent location for families to gather and celebrate the Easter holiday.” 

In addition to the egg hunt and Sunday service, there will be a themed selfie photo booth available for guests to use.
