On a clear morning with the temperature hovering around 45 degrees, many of those arriving early to watch Saturday's parade chose to sit on the sunny west side of Main Street in downtown Antioch.

"You do have to get here early to get a spot on the sunny side," said Mimi Harris of Antioch, whose two grandchildren were among the family and friends she was watching the parade with. "We're out on a beautiful Spring day with friends and family. Spring is finally here and people are coming out of hibernation."

The Easter parade, complete with the Easter Bunny, kicked off at 10:30 a.m. from Skidmore Drive and headed north on Main Street through downtown, ending at Williams Park.

The egg hunt was held at the park after the parade. Officials were prepared for 700 children, ages 1 to 10, to participate.

Photos with the Easter Bunny were available and the 3rd Annual Duck Race to benefit Antioch Elementary District 34 was held at the Sawmill.
