More than 250 kids hopped down to the Osakis Community Center on Saturday to partake in the Osakis Kids Easter Day celebration.

As the popcorn popped, served by Louis and Sherry Gray, and the balloons bopped, the mini-circus was abuzz with pre-Easter Bunny excitement. Kids tromped through the Easter-grass field tucked in one corner of the brimming hall in search of eggs to fill their baskets.

Some children cuddled up to the Easter Bunny for a photo - others ran away from him.

When they weren't being entertained by Janet Fossen's balloon animal and hat making demonstration, youngsters tapped into their creativity by decorating cookies, baskets, picture frames and of course - eggs.
