On Saturday, April 4, the North Riverside Policemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association will be hosting its annual Easter Egg Hunt and Hot Dog Luncheon for the children in the North Riverside area. 

It will be held behind the North Riverside Police Department, 2359 S. Desplaines Ave. and will start promptly at 10:30 a.m.

Children through the age of 13 are eligible to take part. Plastic Easter eggs filled with jellybeans will be scattered on the ground where children, by age groups, will scramble to pick up as many eggs as they can. 

Some of the eggs will contain prize vouchers, which can be redeemed later at the free hot dog luncheon, which will be held in the gymnasium in the North Riverside Village Commons.

The Easter Bunny, McGruff the crime prevention dog and the Medinah Shriner Clowns will be on hand to greet and entertain everyone. Children are asked to bring their own baskets or bags to collect the eggs that they gather. 

In the event of inclement weather, the egg hunt will be held inside the Community Room located in the lower level of the police facility.
