Dolly Sanchez Memorial Easter Egg Hunt


The Dolly Sanchez Memorial Easter Egg Hunt is your chance to meet Mr. and Mrs. Bunny, so don’t forget your camera! Held annually the Saturday before Easter, this event offers something for everyone. There are candy hunts for eight different age groups and one for individuals with disabilities.Highlights of the event will include a petting zoo, pony rides, make & take crafts, face painting, carnival games, fun inflatables, and much more!
The Easter Egg Hunts were initiated in 1976 by Dolly Sanchez, who was a member of the Peoria Community Action Program and Parks and Recreation Board. Because of the success of the hunts, coupled with the city’s growth, the Peoria Community Services Department/Special Events was asked to help in 1983. Thus, a 30 year partnership has developed to improve and expand this fun-filled family event. Through the years, the Easter Egg Hunts have expanded from one park, Varney, to seven neighborhood parks, and finally in 1994 to the Peoria sports Complex. 
The Sanchez family remains an integral part of the Easter Egg Hunts and the community. The Community Action Program continues to assist the families of Peoria.
