As Easter Sunday closes in, children across Jackson County are getting their baskets ready for all of their candies and treats.

Dozens of children and their parents gathered Saturday morning at Little Children’s Park in downtown Ocean Springs for a bevy of Easter activities.

Not only could children explore the park for hidden Easter eggs, but hunts were even divided by age group to give all children a chance to grab some goodies. 

With the enthusiasm of every child, each hunt only lasted a few minutes before all of the eggs were snatched. However, there were plenty of other Easter activities for all attendees.

Throughout the park, children could decorate their own holiday tote bags or win prizes at Easter-themed carnival games. Children could pin the tail on the Easter Bunny or get a strike in Easter bowling.

The park was filled with music to keep everyone in lively spirits. Along with the sunny but cool weather, it was a great morning for everyone to get in the Easter spirit.
