Jamboree for kids set

A 6-foot Easter bunny will be at the Land O'Lakes Community Center from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday for the fifth annual Jellybean Jamboree.

There will be a coloring contest, a guess-how-many-jelly-beans-in-the-jar contest, and a hunt for 4,000 plastic eggs.

After the last coupon plucked from an egg has been redeemed for a teddy bear, Easter bunny or Shamu killer whale, 10 game booths will open, said Jon Buckle, recreation supervisor for the center.

There will be a milk bottle toss, a cane toss, Velcro Tic Tac Toe and pin the tail on the bunny.

"Every kid leaves with something," Buckle said. "There are no losers. Everybody's a winner."

For the adults, there will be a cake walk with eight cakes and 200 cupcakes baked by volunteers.

At noon, there will be a "candy scramble," Buckle said. "We'll section kids according to age, then scatter candy all over the ground" for each group to pick up, Buckle said.

The center is on U.S. 41, north of Hale Road and across from the Land O'Lakes post office. Admission is free. For information, call 929-1220.
