The City of Atwater had their first annual Easter Egg Hunt with the Mayor Paul Creighton at Veterans Park.

Hundreds of people came out to the event including Atwater City Council, Atwater Police Chief, Atwater Fire Department and former mayor of Atwater, Joan Faul.

Atwater Mayor Paul Creighton tells Merced Daily, “We came up with the idea to start bringing positive things back to the City of Atwater. We want to start creating great events for the people, and to have something for the youth to do. This is a new beginning for Atwater.”

The event also had prizes, food, and even free pictures with the Easter Bunny.
