Ornate, flowery hats are totally in style at the Easter parade and Easter Bonnet Contest Saturday in Snohomish.

"There's usually about 150 entries in the contest, including lots of kids and pets. Last year we had dogs, cats and even llamas in Easter bonnets!" says Snohomish Chamber of Commerce manager Pam Osborne.

Many entrants ride the chamber's float in the hometown parade that includes drill teams, local clubs and kids' groups, the Seafair Pirates and Tow Mater, a life-size replica of the friendly tow truck from the Pixar movie "Cars."

Many local parks and community centers offer kids' egg hunts this weekend, with pancake breakfasts and other events at some locations. For all egg-hunt events, organizers ask families to bring a bag or basket for each child and arrive 15 minutes before starting time so that everyone is ready to go.
