BEMIDJI — Children and families gathered at the Tourist Information Center in Paul Bunyan Park on Saturday to celebrate Easter weekend with a Bunny Bash.
Hosted by the city of Bemidji Parks and Recreation Department, the event offered activities for children, such as coloring and Dr. Seuss-themed crafts. Attendees were able to have their photos taken with the Easter Bunny at the event for $8.
Participants were also invited to enjoy the fresh air with a "Signs of Spring" outdoor scavenger hunt, with spring facts posted around the park to search for.
