COLLEGE STATION, Texas, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Brazos Valley community is invited to roll eggs, play games and meet the Easter Bunny at the College Station Easter Celebration March 23 at the George Bush Presidential Library Center at Texas A&M University.

The Easter Celebration is organized by the College Station Police Department, hosted by the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum and presented in partnership with Candy 95, Newstalk 1620 WTAW and Peace 107.

Sgt. Calder Lively said the annual Easter Celebration gives the College Station Police Department an opportunity to interact with the citizens of the community in a positive way. 

"For 32 years, this event has brought warmth to our department in seeing the children and families of our community having such a fantastic time participating in such a great event," Lively said.

The event is designed for children ages 7 and under and will include games, face painting, an Easter egg hunt, egg roll, egg toss, complimentary refreshments, photos with the Easter Bunny and a kite-flying contest.

Specially designed wooden White House-style Easter eggs are given to the children. Local merchants contribute prizes to give away, and a boy's and a girl's bicycle and helmet will be awarded in each of the three age categories: 3 and under, 4-5 and 6-7. Parents must register their children and be present to win.

Bush Library and Museum Public Programs Director Tracy Paine said she expects more than 3,500 people to participate in the event this year.

"This is one of the most popular events of the year at the Bush Library and Museum, and each year it only gets bigger," Paine said.
