TYLER, Texas (KETK) – KETK has a compiled a list of egg-citing Easter events that will be happening in East Texas this weekend.

St. Francis Episcopal Church in Tyler is having an Easter egg drive-thru event on Saturday.

“We’ll have people drive through the parking lot. There will be five stations and at each station they’ll get some little Easter goodie. It might be a stuffed toy, a pair of rabbit ears, eggs, and we just decided to go with that because it would be a little safer during COVID,” said Camille Tollett, with St. Francis Episcopal Church.
