(KSL News) Easter celebrations have been in full swing across the state today.

In Salt Lake City, people used Easter to raise awareness about organ donation. The National Kidney Foundation of Utah hosted an Easter parade to honor kidney donors, kidney recipients, and donor families.

More than 50 families gathered at the Celebration of Life monument to celebrate spring and show their gratitude for a second chance at life.

At the Cancer Wellness House in Salt Lake City, children played games and got their faces painted.

The Easter event was meant to cheer up children who may be dealing with cancer in their family. It also gave them a chance to interact with children whose lives also have been affected by cancer in some way.

Easter activities continued at the Gateway. Children there decorated bonnets with ribbons and bows in preparation for the Easter parade. The Easter Bunny joined in on the fun. He delivered eggs and led the parade.
