Niagara Gazette — The fifth annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Niagara Arts and Cultural Center (NACC) will take place on from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday. Last year over 300 children were in attendance.

It is free and open to the public for children up to 10 years old and all children must be accompanied by an adult. The event will feature photos with the Easter Bunny and registration starts at noon. The Easter Egg Hunt will start at 1 p.m. and there will be many other activities including face painting, craft stations, a basket raffle and prizes for children of all ages.

This year it will be held inside the NACC not on the front lawn as in previous years due to the early calendar date for Easter. The NACC is located on the corner of Pine Avenue and Portage Road at 1201 Pine Ave. in Niagara Falls. The entrance is at the Red Door on Portage Road and there is plenty of free parking at the corner of Portage Road and Walnut Avenue in the South Junior High School parking lot.

The NACC is still looking for basket donations and volunteers for the event. For more information please contact Laurie Martelli at the NACC at 282-7530 or You can also visit our website at for more information.

SEAster egg hunt at aquarium

The Aquarium of Niagara’s annual SEAster egg hunt will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Whirlpool Street attraction. Kids won’t get their feet wet, but to find their SEAster eggs, they’ll have to check out the various salt and freshwater tanks on both levels.

SEAster egg hunters, accompanied by a parent, will receive a special form to keep track of their finds. Prizes include plush animals, candy and more!

The SEAster Bunny will be “hopping” around throughout the day. Sea lion demonstrations, tidal pool and penguin feedings will continue at their regular times. This “egg-stra” special event is included in regular admission of $10 for adults, $6 for children and free for 2 and under. Of course, members are free every day. For more information, call 285-3575, Ext. 206.
