Eggs for all: Easter celebrations abound in Nevada County (PHOTO GALLERY)

Community Easter egg hunting celebrations went off without a hitch across western Nevada County Saturday in advance of Easter Sunday and the opportunity for families to celebrate the holiday at home, at church or out in nature.

In downtown Grass Valley hundreds of children took part in the 46th annual Moose Lodge Easter Egg Hunt at Grass Valley Charter School.

One thousand hard boiled eggs and 2,000 plastic ones were spread throughout the grass with a handful of specially marked prize eggs placed in different age classes.

At Western Gateway Park hundreds of kids and their families lined the oak studded grasslands for the annual Penn Valley Easter Egg Hunt.

The Easter Bunny made a special appearance on a Penn Valley Fire Engine before the kids searched for 4,000 hidden eggs with special prizes.

The Inn Town Campground in Nevada City continued their newfound tradition of holding a special egg hunt for their registered guests while the Don Wasley Memorial Easter Egg Hunt offered a public hunt at the Nevada City Elks Lodge.

Other Easter egg hunts occurred at the Twin Cities Church, Peace Lutheran Church, Bethel Church, Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Grace Lutheran Church and Grass Valley United Methodist, to name a few.
