Children ages 3 to 11 years old scramble for eggs in the snow at Our Savior Lutheran Church’s annual Easter Egg Hunt on March 31 in the Commons Park in Excelsior. The annual event brings out dozens of children from the Lake Minnetonka area. 

Our Savior Lutheran Church & School will host a community Easter egg hunt in the Commons on Saturday, April 20. The free event will take place rain or shine.

Four separate hunts will be at 11 a.m., grouped by ages 0-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-11. There will be 16,000 candy-filled eggs scattered throughout the park.

The day will kick off at 10 a.m. with puppet shows, appearances by the Excelsior Fire District and Sparky the Fire Dog, bunnies, face painting, free food and hot coffee.

Guests can register for a variety of free prizes, including bikes and toys, with drawings at 10:45 a.m.

Some snowy remnants of the life-size ice castles that stood on the lawn this winter season have not fully melted yet, but Ice Castles LLC are contractually obligated to be out of the Commons by April 15.

“I’m sure by April 20, it will not be an issue. We’ve even held the event there with 13 inches of snow before!” said event spokeswoman Beth Pursley.

In case of severe weather, log on to or call 952-474-5181 for updates.
