The Huynh family children had complete focus as they painted ceramic bunnies Saturday.

As part of the Apache Arts and Crafts Easter celebration, the three children settled in to paint after hitting up the event’s pinata and face painting booth.

For 6-year-old Chloe Huynh, having her face painted like a “Frozen” movie character was her favorite part of the day.

Barbara Newberry said this is the 11th year for the craft center to host the spring event, which is free and allows families a chance to learn what Apache has to offer. About 1,000 people participated this year.

“We keep growing every year,” she said. “Hopefully, parents saw something interesting and come back to use the building.”

Lynn Jackson, a military spouse, brought her children out for the second year in a row to enjoy the spring festival.

“I always go and find free activities during the weekend,” she said as her two sons drew with sidewalk chalk. “I want them to find simple joys and be entertained.”
