ELK COUNTY--With just a week to go, it's time to make plans if you want to attend one or all of the Easter Egg Hunts going on next week in Elk County.
Ridgway has the first Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by the Awakening Alliance Church and will hide some 10,000 eggs on the Ridgway Firemen Carnival Grounds. The fun begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 1, with the Ridgway-Elk County Chamber of Commerce starting off the annual "Hop and Shop" event in downtown Ridgway. Face painting and other kids' activities will occur at the Welcome Center on Main Street. The Easter Egg Hunt begins at 11 a.m. at the carnival grounds on North Broad Street. There is no cost for admission to any Hop and Shop events, but local merchants are running special sales, and even the Salvation Army is participating with the Fill-a-Bag promotion.
