It's Easter weekend, and there's plenty going on across Central Wisconsin. Let's take a look at the community calendar.
You can get a little bowling with the family this weekend, and even win some trophies. It's the Easter 9-pin Tournament at Dales Weston Lanes tomorrow night. The tournament starts at 3, and there's a dinner and raffle at 7 pm. It's just 30 dollars per person per team, and everyone has a chance to win prizes. Find out more by calling 359-8488.
St. Peter's Elementary in Schofield is hosting their Easter Kids party tomorrow morning starting at 9:30. Your child will sing songs, make crafts, and enjoy games with other children their age. A free hot dog lunch will be provided. This a free program for kids ages 3 to fifth grade.
Stevens Point is hosting their 24th annual Easter egg hunt at Pfiffner Pioneer park tomorrow morning. There's three start times so everyone gets a good shake at the hunt. Toddlers to three year olds start at 10:30, 4 to 6 year olds start at 10:35, and 7 to 8 year olds go at 10:40. There's over 16-thousand plastic eggs filled with candy and prize slips out in the park. So come on out, and leave the bags and baskets at home so everyone can get some eggs.
Thanks again to Chuck Cornelius and the Oasis theatre ensemble. Picnic continues tonight at 7:30 and tomorrow at 2:30 and 7:30 at the UWMC theatre. Tickets are just 10 dollars at the door.
Next week, you probably have some left over Easter candy. Why not turn it into art? It's the Peeps Exhibition at Water Street Arts in Rothschild.
