Eggstravaganza makes it a cool dozen — Candy and treats won’t be the only things sought after as Pauls Valley’s Eggstravaganza returns for the 12th time this weekend.

Along with the goody filled eggs for kids to swarm after on Saturday, April 19, this is a time for fellowship and fun for everyone.

The churches participating this year is different from the usual trio with Trinity Baptist Church no longer participating. Instead, Christian Life Church, First Church of God and Cornerstone Community Church are the featured churches.

“We always have enough for every kid who shows up,” said First Church of God Pastor Terry Clayton.

“Last year was wonderful… We just feel that it’s a great family event.”

It all starts at 11 a.m. with free hot dogs and drinks and then is followed by the hunt at 11:30 a.m.

The plan is to hold it as usual at the Garvin County Fairgrounds in Wacker Park. They can move it into the fair barn if it rains, as they did a few years ago.

The event has four groups: infant to three year olds, four to six year olds, first to third graders and forth through six graders.

Eggstravaganza will feature a raffle drawing at noon for prizes that include boys and girls bikes for the different age groups.

Clayton is open to more churches joining the activity later on. He says for him it’s more about the outreach than anything else.

He said it only happens because of the generous donations of the three churches.

“The more churches helping, the easier the outreach is,” said Clayton. “It seems like it is hard to get our churches together… I just think it’s exciting.”

Clayton welcomes those who don’t have a place to go Easter Sunday to their service on April 20 at 10:30 a.m., where their choir will sing “My Redeemer Lives.” The church is located at 414 North Chickasaw.
