Although the connection between rabbits, eggs, and water may not be crystal clear, what is guaranteed is that this mix of characteristics will provide a fresh, new way to celebrate Easter. The Under the Sea Easter Adventure, hosted by Don Rodenbaugh Natatorium is open to all kids, although for kids under 6, a parent must be with them as they hunt for safety’s sake. Pre-registration, at only $10, is required by March 29. At registration, age determines time slots for egg hunting in the water. Kids must wear swimsuits to join. Kids will get the chance to take their picture with the Easter bunny. Whether you prefer a photo with a wet kid or dry kid next to their Easter hero is up to you. Either way, it is sure to be memorable for everyone.
