In an effort to encourage greater participation across all segments of the community, the City has added specially designed areas to its community events that are accessible to people with special needs. The features will make it easier for disabled individuals to enjoy City events.
The new element makes its debut on April 11 at the City’s Bunny Days, which will include a special “Egg Hunt” area with wheelchair accessibility. The Egg Hunt area, adorned in vivid spring colors, will facilitate smaller groups for longer time periods. The public can enjoy the free area from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center, 24932 Veterans Way.
Hundreds of people of all ages are expected to flock to the City’s popular Bunny Days, a family-fun event featuring carnival game booths, spring crafts, face painting, pony rides and a petting zoo for a nominal fee. Naturally, a friendly large bunny will be on hand for photos, too.
The event, which takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., includes free egg hunts for children up to 10 years of age. The first egg hunt for kids 2 years of age and under kicks off at 11:20 a.m., which will be followed by other age-designated egg hunts. The final egg event for 8 to 10-year-old kids takes place at 12:50 p.m.
Along with savoring the many activities throughout the day, the public will enjoy delectable homemade cookies, brownies, cakes, breads and muffins during the annual Senior Bake Sale.
