The weekend is full of Easter festivities.

Beginning on Saturday morning, the City of Lebanon Gas Department will host their annual Easter Egg Hunt at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center.

The event kicks-off at 10 a.m. when the Easter Bunny arrives, followed by an Egg Decorating contest and egg hunts for children of all ages. The Egg Hunts are divided into categories by age - little ones ages 0-23 months will hunt at 10:15 a.m., 2-3 year olds at 10:30 a.m., 4-6 year olds at 10:45 a.m., 7-8 year olds at 11 a.m. and ages 9-10 at 11:15 a.m.

Although there will not be a photographer on-site, parents are encouraged to bring their cameras and iPhones for photos with the Easter Bunny.

"The kids can sit and get a picture. It is a good time to get pictures of the grandkids having a great time," said Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead. "We've had some cold weather and some rainy weather, but I think it is shaping up to be a good day for the event."

Fire Engine rides will also be available thanks to the Lebanon Fire Department.

The Sparta Pike entrance to the fairgrounds will be open.

Kiwanis Club of Lebanon is changing up their annual Easter service event this year. For over 70 years, Kiwanis has held a sunrise service on the Lebanon Public Square; however, this year the event will be a sunset service on Saturday night.

The sunset service will begin at 6 p.m. on the Square and feature live music, speakers and free water and coffee. The Capitol Theatre will serve as a rain out location.
