Two of today's Easter egg hunts are scheduled in Port Townsend.
For early risers, the Port Townsend Elks Club's 83rd annual Easter egg hunt will be held at Chetzemoka Park at 8 a.m.
The free public hunt is geared toward children 12 and younger. At least 100 dozen eggs (1,200) will be hidden in the park by Port Townsend Boy Scouts.
Later in the day at 1 p.m., the American Legion Post No. 26 Ladies Auxiliary will host its annual free Easter egg hunt at the Fred Lewis Scout Cabin Park (formerly Legion Park), which is on Discovery Road near the city limits.
Another hunt is set in the heights: The Hurricane Ridge Ski Area will host an Easter Egg Olympics Hunt.
A hunt for younger children will be held on the bunny slopes at 12:30 p.m., while older children can hunt for eggs on the pommel-lift side of the ski slope at 1 p.m.
Among the eggs will be a golden one that includes a season pass to the Hurricane Ridge Ski Area for the 2013-2014 winter season.
In Forks, the Elks Club will offer its annual Easter Breakfast at the lodge, 941 Merchants Road, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. today.
