The Northwest Neighborhood Alliance is partnering with the Sheila K Foundation to host “Easter in the Park” from 1-5 p.m. Saturday at Kendall-Perkins Park. In addition to the Easter egg hunt, organizers plan to give away 40 bicycles. The celebration will have numerous other activities including inflatables, mechanical bull riding, live music, and food.

“It’s great that we get the opportunity to give back to the community during the holiday, especially to give bikes to the kids,” said Northwest Neighborhood Chair Rafe Buckner. “And it wouldn’t be possible without the sponsors and volunteers.”

Northwest Alliance Chair Rafe Buckner said that he’s excited for the community to come out, as it’s an event for all ages to enjoy before the Easter holiday.

“Everyone is welcome to come to the event and enjoy all we will have to offer at the Park,” Buckner said.

The event began in 2015 after the Sheila K. Foundation was started in honor of Justin Davidson’s mother, who died that year from stage 4 lung cancer. The event was designed to bring awareness to the effects of cancer while also creating a fun opportunity for families and children. 

The event has evolved over time and has become a huge success over the years. One year the Alliance gave away 300 Easter baskets and hid more than 1,000 eggs across the park.
