Water, kids and fun

Slippy-slidey fun at the annual Wet 'N' Wild Easter Egg Hunt


The first thing you notice is the sound: kind of high-pitched, loud and sing-songy. It's the combined squeals and laughter from a whole bunch of little kids playing in the water during the annual Wet 'N' Wild Easter Egg Hunt Saturday (March 24) at the Taos Youth and Family Center swimming pool.

Carefully organized by the TYFC staff, headed by Community Events Coordinator Judy Esquibel, the event included several hunts in different age groups allowing all to enjoy hunting for plastic eggs, toys and rubber duckies which the kids put into green netted bags instead of baskets. Of course, there were prizes, concessions and lots of playtime.

The Taos News was there to capture some of the sights for this week's "On the scene" column, which you can see on Page 16-17 in Tempo.
