It's Easter, and churches around the valley have planned holiday services to mark it.

A few egg hunts also are planned today, including the annual giant scramble for eggs at Lithia Park in Ashland. It begins at 1 p.m. Several others are scheduled today as well.

In Jacksonville, an Easter promenade is planned by the Belles & Beaus Old West/Victorian Society. They’ll dress up in period costumes from the 1800s from 1 to 4 p.m. and show their finery on California Street.
