Easter Egg WALK ABOUT
In lieu of this year’s Community Easter Egg Hunt, there will be a Cordova Community Easter Egg WALK ABOUT where members of the same household can get out for some fresh air and look for eggs. The event begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 11. Eggs will be hidden around town, in plain sight and away from public entrances. If you find an egg with a number on it, post a photo of you and your egg on the Community Easter Egg Hunt Facebook page to win an Easter Basket. Take proper precautions and participate responsibly. **Review and understand all current COVID-19 mandates prior to heading out: cityofcordova.net/residents/a-safe-cordova/cordova-prepared.
