March 27, 2017

Easter eggs on the Bush Library lawnThe 2017 College Station Easter Celebration will take place on Saturday, April 8 at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum grounds. The festivities will begin at 9:30 a.m. to noon.

The egg hunt has been a long-standing tradition hosted by the College Station Police Department. From humble beginnings in 1982, the Easter Celebration has evolved into one of the most highly anticipated events of the spring, say organizers. The Bush Library and Museum began partnering with the police department in 1999, adding activities to the event modeled after the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

Activities will include games, face painting, an Easter egg hunt, egg roll, egg toss, kite flying contest, complimentary refreshments, and photos with the Easter Bunny. Specially designed wooden White House-style Easter Eggs will be given to the children. Local merchants contribute prizes to give away, and a boy’s and a girl’s bicycle and helmet will be awarded in each of the three age categories: 3 and under, 4-5 and 6-7. Parents must register their children to win.
