Annual Altra Federal Credit Union Easter Egg Hunt

Area kids started their Easter celebrations Saturday. Altra Federal Credit Union hosted their 47th annual Easter Egg Hunt at their operations center in Onalaska.

The event included activities such as an egg hunt, face painting, chocolate candy egg toss and photos with the Easter bunny.

Organizers say the event has become extremely successful over the years and although the weather doesn’t always cooperate, it’s always a good time.

“We usually have over a thousand children come to the event and we just want to provide a great event for the family to come to and enjoy. Even though the weather’s not cooperating very nice today, still we had a great turnout and the kids had a lot of fun,” said Altra Federal Credit Union vice president Cheryl Dutton.

The event was free and open to all to attend.
