Old Fashioned Easter Egg Hunt
Cottonwood's Old Fashioned Easter Egg Hunt is held yearly the Saturday before Easter. Children ages 1 month to 8 years gather at Riverfront Park with their baskets or bags to search for candy and prize filled eggs. The Cottonwood Youth Advisory Commission has been known to bring the Easter Bunny with them for hugs and pictures. The Hunt begins at 10:00 am, but arrive early as parking spots fill quickly. This is a free event. flyer
