Easter is kind of like the Super Bowl of church. It's a very big part of the Christian faith and should be celebrated in a big way. One new church in downtown Evansville wants to bring the entire community together to "party."

They will have 12,000 eggs for kids to hunt, as well as inflatables and food trucks.

Food Trucks:
Pizza Revolution
Bruce Li's
Papa T's Tamales
River City Coffee

Little kids 0-3 will begin hunting Easter Eggs at 10:00 AM
Big kids 4-12 will begin their own Easter Egg hunt at 10:15-30 AM

Lead Pastor Patrick Garcia told me, "We are doing this egg hunt because we love our city and want to bring people together for a full family experience. Local food trucks and coffee shops will be present. WE want people to know that Jesus throws the BEST parties!" The 0-3 year egg hunt starts at 10 AM and 4-12 year-olds will hunt at 10:15-30. Bring a basket!

The community is also invited to attend the Easter church services on April 21st at 9 and 11 AM that are appropriately named, "Welcome to the Party."
