Family Fun Easter Event

April 11, 2020 @ 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Gena McPherson, Chamber of Commerce
Since the Ravenna Chamber is unable to hold the annual Easter Egg hunt at VFW Park this year due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions we are turning lemons into lemonade by organizing different events/activities in collaboration with the Ravenna Public Library and Svanda’s Pharmacy that will allow our community to still come together and at the same time support some local businesses that are in desperate need right now!
Disclaimer: For all of the following events please follow all social distancing recommendations. Please check out for further details on social distancing and health directives. Also go to for all local updates about COVID-19.
