It's hard to believe this Sunday will be Easter, time flies when you're having fun. I'm looking forward to it and all the candy. I mean can you really call it Easter without a chocolate bunny or two? Or Peeps and jelly beans.

It's the longest-running Easter Pagent "Passion Play" in the U.S. and it's right here in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge just minutes away from Lawton, Fort Sill.
Find out what the #1 most popular Easter candy or treat is in the Sooner state. If you thought it was jelly beans or the traditional chocolate Easter bunny you'd be wrong. You'll never guess what most states listed as their all time Easter favorite, It's not even candy!
The Holy City of the Wichitas could be closing due to financial challenges. The Holy City operates and is open thanks to donations from visitors and of course a lot of those visitors come for the annual Easter pageant "The Price of Peace." With the COVID-19 pandemic last year the pageant was delayed and was only lightly attended unlike years past. This has caused serious issues and has jeopardized the Holy City's future.

Cameron University held a free Easter egg hunt for any kids that attended the softball games last Tuesday, March 31. Students involved in SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee) dispersed colorful Easter eggs across the outfield after the games ended.
Grace Fellowship Church is sponsoring the first annual Easter Egg Scramble on Saturday, April 4th at Cameron University Stadium. With 60,000 Easter eggs stuffed and ready to go, this will be one of the biggest Easter egg hunts ever done in the Lawton/Fort Sill area.
This isn't the fluffy bunny of your childhood, or the mellow rabbit at the mall you get your picture with. This is the evil Easter bunny, who instead of delivering colored eggs brings screams and terror to those he meets.
