Spring has sprung, and my kids are already patiently waiting for the Easter Bunny to hop into town. Each year, I get in on the fun around town and participate as a local business at the Los Alamitos Spring Carnival on the Saturday before Easter. This year I’m handing out 500 boxes of Peeps!

 The City of Los Alamitos and I want to invite you to welcome in the spring season with the annual MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach Spring Carnival, presented by AYSO 159. The event is held on Saturday, April 20, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Little Cottonwood Park (4000 Farquhar Ave). It’s free to attend and lots of fun.

 Come out and enjoy family activities for all ages, including egg hunts, face painting, balloon twisting, carnival games, prizes, live entertainment, food trucks, games, inflatables, and even a photo opp with Peter Rabbit! Egg hunts will begin at 9:30 a.m. with the 0-2 age group and continue by age every 5 minutes. Live entertainment is offered by Sugar Lips, a cover band performing classic rock and pop songs for all to enjoy.
