Columbia hosting old-fashioned Easter parade & hunt on March 31
COLUMBIA - Dress up in your Easter finery and be a part of Columbia’s Victorian Easter Parade, a Victorian Era promenade on Main Street in Columbia State Historic Park on Easter Sunday, March 31, just north of Sonora off Highway 49.

Prizes will be awarded for fanciest Victorian hat, and best dressed couple, lasses and lads, groups, and pets. Registration begins at 11 a.m. in front of the Fallon Hotel, and the parade gets underway at 12:30 p.m.

Children will enjoy Columbia’s popular Easter Egg Hunts. The Small Fry Egg Search begins at noon for ages 3 to 5. After the Easter Parade, the Junior Egg Poachers (ages 6 to 8) will try their luck at 1 p.m., and finally the Great Egg Scramblers (ages 9 to 12) at 1:30 p.m. Find the golden egg and receive a special prize. And be on the lookout for Thaddeus E. Hare (aka the Easter Bunny) walking around town, handing out fresh carrots to the kids.

All events are free. The event is sponsored by the Columbia Chamber of Commerce. For more information, call 209-536-1672 or visit
