The Easter bunny will fly away for fun with Eggs-Stravganza

WATERVILLE — The Humane Society Waterville Area is hosting its first Eggs-Stravganza fundraiser on April 9 with a rain date of April 10. Join HSWA between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. for fun activities and delicious food. Have you seen a rabbit fly? Well, you will at this event! At 12 p.m. sharp, the Easter Bunny will parachute onto HSWA property to distribute candy-filled eggs and take pictures with your family. Be sure to wear your best Easter costume! Be sure to head there to see this high-flying event!

This is a no-entry event, but we would love to receive any donations you would like to bring. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we receive no federal or state funding. Our shelter operates solely through generous donations from our community. We will have hot dogs, provided by Emery’s Meat and Produce, for sale. We also have great raffle items. A children’s Vespa, two tickets to an opera performance and a “Build Your Own” Mother’s Day basket with great items such as certificates for Apollo’s Salon and Spa, Holy Cannoli, The Robin’s Nest and Moreover ! Tickets will be available for purchase.

We have great activities for the little ones like a petting zoo for chicks and bunnies, a little egg hunt in the community hall, photos with the Easter bunny and animal tours available at our shelter. You don’t want to miss this high-flying event!

A special thank you to the companies that help us make this event possible: Emery’s Meat and Produce, Aubuchon Hardware, Holy Cannoli, Vactionland Skydiving, Apollo’s Salon and Day Spa and The Robin’s Nest.

Our mission is to shelter animals until they find forever homes, educate the community about responsible pet ownership, and advocate for the humane treatment of all animals. To learn more or support the Humane Society Waterville Area, visit
