Rim Country Hoppin' With Easter Events


Easter Egg Scramble


The Tonto Basin 4-H Clover Kids had a little Easter fun with an egg-rolling contest. This competition was a bit more challenging as it was done in the dirt with plastic eggs that kept opening. Nonetheless, they toughed it out and enjoyed themselves. See our list of Easter activities and worship services.

The 12th Annual Easter Egg Scramble for children ages 12 and under will begin at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, April 15 at Rumsey Park II Ballfield, north of the swimming pool.

Children can collect eggs filled with candy and coupons for special prizes. There is no charge for this event, but children should bring their own Easter basket.

Scramble times and age groups are as follows: ages 0-3 at 9:30 a.m., ages 4 and 5 at 9:45 a.m., ages 6 and 7 at 10 a.m., ages 8 and 9 at 10:15 a.m., ages 10-12 at 10:30 a.m. and special needs kids at 10:45 a.m.

The Payson Humane Society will bring a giant bunny and a llama. Children may get their picture taken with either for a donation.
