Starting at the south end of the valley, Hyrum City will hold their Easter egg hunt at the City Square at 83 W. Main, starting at 9 a.m. on March 30. The Teen Easter Egg Hunt is at 9 p.m. at the rodeo grounds.

Nibley City has moved away from the traditional Easter egg hunt. The city will be holding an Easter Egg Run Hopstacle Course on March 30, at 9 a.m. The activity will be located at Virgil Gibbons Heritage Park at 2456 S. 800 West. Registration can be done the night before or at 8 a.m. the morning prior to the event.

Chad Wright, the recreation director for the city, thought the traditional Easter egg hunt was over in minutes and gave little time for the community to interact with each other. So, they turned it into a fitness activity, a Hopstacle Course where kids chased the Easter Bunny through some obstacles before being rewarded with candy.

Wendy Linberg, the utility specialist at Nibley City, said they also have a 1-mile-run and a 5 k Run. For more information, contact Nibley City at (435) 752-0431.
