Huge turnout at Desert Hills Easter event

Staff did an excellent job of keeping things organized on a very busy day.

The Easter Bunny had to bring helpers including the Easter Chicken and the Easter Bear to Desert Hills Ranch in Ashcroft on April 16, as more than 1,000 people took part in the Easter festivities there.

People came from far and wide to take part in the Easter egg hunts (of course) and collect their treats. There were also donkey rides, prizes, authentic Mexican food and drink, and a dozen inflatables, as well as an assortment of adorable animals including bunnies, chicks, and two Highland cows.

Judging by the happy faces, the event was a huge success.
