Even the easter bunny could be seen joining in the festivities. Easter candy, a catered meal, and moving into the warmer months had most folks pretty excited.
WEST MONROE, LA - March 20th marks the official first day of spring, and some local folks held a celebration to welcome in the new season. Over 300 seniors packed the West Ouachita Senior Center for the 2013 Easter Luncheon.
"When we throw a party, we throw a party," said Cynthia Holland, Program Manager for the West Ouachita Senior Center. "And believe me, seniors, ages sixty and over, they just love to come and have a good time. And this is their center. And they love to have a good time here."
Entertainment was provided by the Broadway Wannabees, a volunteer senior drama club.
For part of the show, they modeled several interesting fashions: From a tea dress decked out with teabags, to a ball gown decorated in various sporting balls.
