ROCKFORD (WIFR) — The Easter Bunny was very busy hiding eggs all around Rockford this morning. He even tried out a new spot or two.

Forest City Rehab and Nursing Center got involved in egg-hunting festivities for the first time and Mother Nature cooperated. Hundreds came out to fill their baskets in the sunshine while Mr. Bunny admired his work and posed for a few pictures with his fans. There were plenty of carnival-style games for the little ones, face-paints and a few bike give-a-ways as well. The staff says they are very happy with the turn-out.

A hop, skip and a jump down the road, at Court Street United Methodist Church, kids entertained themselves indoors. It was the church’s annual “Easter Egg-stravaganza!” There were arts and crafts and games like bags, giant checkers and twister in the youth center downstairs. All topped off with an egg-hunt!
