Dress up in your Easter finery and come to Columbia State Historic Park on Sunday, April 9 for the annual Victorian Easter Celebration presented by the Columbia Chamber of Commerce.

Participate in the Main Street parade at 1 p.m., where awards will be given for several categories including fanciest Victorian hat, best dressed couple, lasses and lads, and much more.

Registration begins at 11 a.m. in front of the Fallon Hotel.

Children will also enjoy the popular Easter Egg Hunts. The Small Fry Egg Search (ages 3 to 5) begins at noon; the Junior Egg Poachers (ages 6 to 8) will try their luck at 2 p.m. following the parade.

And finally, the Great Egg Scramblers (ages 9 to 12) will go on the hunt at 2:30 p.m.

Those who find a golden egg will receive a special prize. Also, be on the lookout for Thaddeus E. Hare (aka the Easter Bunny) walking around town and handing out goodies to the kids.

There will be a raffle for Easter Baskets filled with goodies from Columbia’s merchants and local businesses at 3 p.m. in front of the Johnson’s Livery stable. Tickets are $1 each, or 25 tickets for $20.

Free parking and free admission. Early arrival recommended due to limited parking.
