Easter arrives a bit later than usual this year. But with that April 21 date comes the chance of better weather for a good, old-fashioned Easter egg hunt for the kids.
The Easter Bunny will appear at five Triboro-area Easter egg hunts in the days leading up to the holiday. Four are scheduled for this weekend, with the other slated for the day before Easter.
Here’s the schedule as it stands now:
Moosic Alliance Community Church
The folks at Moosic Alliance Community Church will host its Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 13, beginning at 11 a.m. at the church, 608 Rocky Glenn Road.

Lackawanna County Commissioners
The Lackawanna County Commissioners and Parks & Recreation Department will conduct its Easter egg hunt on Saturday at McDade Park on the Scranton-Taylor border. Pre-registration begins at 11 a.m., with the event starting at noon.
Open to children of all ages, the event will include plenty of candy, surprises and snacks, plus use of the park’s facilities and a visit from the Easter Bunny.
Old Forge Lions Club
A time-honored tradition for many years, the Old Forge Lions Club’s annual Easter egg hunt will be held Saturday beginning at noon at Old Forge Memorial Stadium.
The event is open to children ages 12 and younger, and will feature a number of goodies and prizes.

Nicole Schuback Easter Egg Hunt
Finally, on Saturday, April 20, the second annual Nicole Schuback Easter Egg Hunt will take place from noon to 3 p.m. at the Old Forge High School Gymnasium.
The event is being coordinated by Old Forge students Hannah Lisowski, Jonathan Nicholoff, Kevin Pepsin and Kalvin Jeffers for their senior project.
In addition to the hunt, the event will include a bake sale and numerous basket raffles. The planners are currently looking for donations, baskets and baked goods.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Scholarship Fund, which is given every year to an Old Forge student-athlete.
