The City’s annual Spring Egg Hunt brought out hundreds of parents and children to the City Hall Campus, where they enjoyed a hearty breakfast, got to pet rabbits, chickens and ducks and search for brightly-colored holiday eggs.
The City of Perris was well-represented at the event, with Councilmembers David Rabb and Julio Rodriguez meeting and greeting the crowds who enjoyed the friendly, family atmosphere.
“We have a great turnout, a lot of young families and young children,” Rabb said. “I look forward to more events like this in the future. I am enjoying the sun, having a great breakfast and being outside, It’s all good.”
Perris minister Felix Bobo took part in the day’s festivities along with his son, 18 months. Bobo said he was pleased the City promotes events that unify its residents.
“This is a great way to meet people in our community in a safe environment,” Bobo said. “I definitely want to be part of what the City of Perris is doing for our community. It’s great to know that we are living in a community that values families.”
Ibeth Galvan came to the egg hunt with her 3-month-old son, Sebastian Hernandez.
“I love the family atmosphere and the great environment for the kids,” she said. “I love the City of Perris for providing the kids something to do and for bringing its people together.”
Resident Chae McKeithan brought her son, Isaiah, to the egg hunt. It was their first time at the event. McKeithan said she enjoys the activity because it reinforces in her that Perris maintains a small-town atmosphere.
“I am always looking for things to do that keep me in this City,” she said. “This is a caring community. They definitely care about their residents. It makes me want to stay here.”
Dayana Higueros brought her two sons, Isaiah, 8, and Elijah, 5, to the egg hunt. Higueros said seeing her children happy made her happy.
“I really enjoy this,” she said. “It’s lots of fun. “This is fantastic, it’s a great community event.”
