Easter Egg Hunt

Hundreds of children, thousands of eggs, countless memories. That was the Kiwanis Club’s annual Easter Egg Hunt and family picnic event at Stonehouse Park Saturday. Along with three age-specific egg hunts, there were luminous bubbles to chase, cotton candy to eat, cookies to decorate, animals to pet, and the Easter Bunny to visit. Plus, the kids and their families got to see a fire truck up close, a Sheriff’s Department Canine Unit demonstration, and a number from the Murieta Dance Company’s upcoming show.

Every May 1 for the last 25 years, you could find Pamela Haines in the shady field across from the North Gate. For a half-hour or so, she would beat a drum and lead children around a maypole to mark May Day in a celebration from another generation.  She’ll do it a final time this year, and unless someone steps up, that will be that – the community’s last maypole. Read more » Read more » about Is this the last time around the maypole?

Food trucks

The Summerfest food trucks returned to Stonehouse Park Sunday for another summer of weekly visits. The six trucks offered a wide range of foods – barbecue, ice cream, street tacos, Asian foods and more – on a beautiful afternoon and evening. Hundreds of adults chatted at tables and in a big cluster of golf carts and blankets while the kids ran around on the grass and the courts, rode scooters and kicked balls high into the sky. One of the touring passenger balloons, a rarity in the evening sky, was even spotted to the southeast. (Click for larger image) Read more » about Enjoying a four-wheeled Sunday dinner
