The College Station Easter Egg Hunt has been a long standing tradition hosted by the Police Department. From humble beginnings in 1982, the Easter Celebration has evolved into one of the most highly anticipated events of the spring. The Bush Library and Museum began partnering with the police department in 1999, adding activities to the event modeled after the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
