The Neosho Easter Eggstravaganza is back! After a two-year halt due to the Covid pandemic, the Neosho community has again pulled together to provide a community-wide Easter egg hunt event.

The fun, family-friendly day of activities is planned for Saturday, April 16, at Morse Park North. Registration starts at 10 am, and egg hunts begin at 11.

In Joplin, the Empire Market, located at 931 E. 4th street, holds their first Easter Egg Hunt in two years. It will be held during the market’s regular hours from 10 am until 2 pm this Saturday.

With many schools closed this Friday, the Carthage YMCA is taking advantage, holding their Easter and Healthy Kids Day from 1 pm until 4. The event includes story time with the Easter Bunny. All three events are free and open to the public. Visit krpsnews.com for links and more information.
