Kimball’s Easter Egg-Stravaganza was a success Saturday, April 9. The morning kicked-off with a Family Fun Run on the Kimball Track. More than 60 youth runners participated in the event. Maylee Decker, a kindergarten student at Kimball elementary, placed first in the initial race (ages 0-5), while Bo Meyer, a third-grader at Kimball elementary, earned top honors in the second race (ages 6-11).

After the race, more than 125 children took part in the Kimball Easter Egg Hunt on the varsity football field. The Easter Bunny and children enjoyed hunting down more than 1,600 eggs.

The morning concluded with an Easter Carnival in the Kimball High School Wirth Gym. More than 160 children enjoyed inflatables, carnival games, raffle prizes, writing letters to the Easter Bunny, and posing for photos with the Easter Bunny.
