Lakeview Regional Medical Center is excited to announce that it will host the Kids’ Town EGGStravaganza on “the Green” on Sunday, April 13th from noon until 4pm. The event, taking place adjacent the pond facing the hospital, will feature three different age-level Easter egg hunts, special eggs with Elmer Candy coupons, food and drink, arts & crafts tents, entertainment, photos with the Easter Bunny, and new this year—Corporate Baby Duck Beauty Pageant.
