Community Events Taking Place in Peoria


                                         Dolly Sanchez Easter Egg Hunt Attracts Thousands of Children

For 38 years, the Sanchez family and the city of Peoria have worked together to give children the ultimate Easter egg hunt. This year’s egg hunt will take place on Saturday, April 19 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Peoria Sports Complex, located at 16101 N. 83rd Ave. just south of Bell Road.
