sweet spirit

The north end began its Easter celebration with Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant & Pub’s 26th annual Easter egg hunt April 19. Children were split into two age groups to look for the colorful eggs, each containing a treat or surprise.

Children run for eggs when the hunt begins.

Families gathered to take part in “Come Stuff the Easter Box” Sunday, at Moore’s Stone Crab Restaurant. Moore’s collected items such as shampoo, toothpaste and soap in the “Easter boxes” throughout the restaurant to benefit Family Resources. The afternoon also included an egg hunt and a visit from the Easter Bunny.
