Strongs Creek Plaza offers annual Spring Extravaganza!

Strongs Creek Plaza will be holding their 4th annual Spring Extravaganza on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event is for the whole family and will play host to endless activities and treats.

"The Hydesville 7th graders will have a cupcake booth where kids can decorate their own cupcakes and a fun fishing game," Kasie Goodner Harris said.

"Miralily's Caramel Apples will be there and we will only have 100 caramel apples to sell," said Heather Rust owner of Miralily Caramel Apples. "Get them early because they go quick! Our booth will be a fundraiser with 100 percent of profits being donated to our Hydesville Girl Scout Troop 10632. Hope to see you."

There will be lots to experience and participate. The Easter Bunny will be making his appearance for pictures to benefit the Hydesville Boosters. Come to enjoy a fun Easter egg and scavenger hunt or enter a coloring contest.

Animals will again play a part as some of the Easter Bunny's friends will be making their way via Miranda's Rescue for a petting zoo. The Shriner Clowns will be making their own animals and other festive balloon creations in the holiday spirit.

Ethan & Teyler Totes will be selling some wonderful baked goods to help raise funds for their nonprofit that provides totes, blankets, and emergency needs to families at children's hospitals.

Fortuna School District PTO will have cotton candy, child IDs provided by Mason's, car wash and candy sales will be available benefiting Cuddeback 7th and 8th graders. Bounce around to benefit New Life Christian School in a bounce house, enjoy some Bow2Toe cheerleading demonstrations, get your face painted by Wild Souls Ranch, and enjoy horse carriage rides.

Information booths will be available for Humboldt Community Breast Health Project, Eel River Youth Soccer League, Eel River Valley Youth Football, and ASA softball.

Strongs Creek merchants will have sales and fun to offer. Bring the whole family for a day of fun and memories. For more information, contact KiDiLiCiouS at 725-3200.
