Easter Drive-Thru Celebration

Wayne Howard

It was offered as a safe alternative to the traditional Easter Egg Hunt, and it was much enjoyed by the kids who saw not one, but several, Easter bunnies; got Easter candy and toys, and stayed safe while doing during the Downtown Lincolnton Drive-Thru Easter Celebration Saturday (April 3rd).  The event was sponsored by the City of Lincolnton Parks & Recreation Dept., the Child Advocacy Center, the Partnership for Children, the Lincoln Cultural Center and two local churches as well as other helpers.  

There were four stops, each offering a bag of goodies to children: at the Lincoln Cultural Center, 1st Federal Park, First United Methodist Church and Emmanuel Lutheran Church.  

The event was similar to the drive-thru Halloween celebration last Fall.  That may return this year, but by next, the Easter Egg Hunt, which had run for 72 years before being called off in 2020 because of the pandemic, will likely return.

Lincolnton, like most other towns & cities, didn't have a Fourth of July parade last year, but Independence Day this year is expected to include one--as well as fireworks at the Lincolnton High School stadium.  Details are yet to be finalized, but even if some restrictions are necessary, the events being planned.
