Northern NM Communities Celebrate Easter

There were various Easter egg celebrations in the northern Taos County communities to come together and enjoy this spring holiday.

In Questa, the community-wide Easter egg hunt was on Saturday, March 30. Mayor John Ortega thanked some of the event’s sponsors, Living Word Ministries, Freedom Questa Church, and the Catholic Knights of Columbus. There were other supporters, including the Taos Community Foundation. Additionally, Freedom Church donated over 2,000 eggs for the hunt!

In Amalia, the community held their Easter egg hunt on the same day, Saturday March 30. The Amalia Neighborhood Association posted several photos of the festivities, with a post that said “thank you to everyone who came out today. Thank you to everyone who helped today and thank you to everyone who donated money so that we can make this possible.”

Early on Easter morning, Sunday March 31, community members gathered at the Eagle Rock Lake for the annual Sunrise Service as hosted by Living Word Ministries and the First Baptist Church in Red River. The service followed local celebrations at the parishes, including at Freedom Church.
