The smiles were big, the Easter eggs plentiful and the weather perfect on Saturday, April 3, as Shangri-La of Salem put on its annual Accessible Easter Egg Hunt.

The event was literally a moving event as Covid restrictions meant a drive-thru experience for children with disabilities. While in their vehicles, the kids could play games, gather eggs and even meet Caesar the No-Drama Llama.

The kids could win eggs containing prizes by participating in the games from their car seats.
