Gone in a flash… 10,000 Easter eggs were scooped up in a flash by happy, high energy youngsters Sunday afternoon in the city’s first annual Easter Egg Hunt. The event, held in Heritage Park, took advantage of 70+ temps and warm midday sun, drawing to a close before predicted storms rolled through later in the day.
Across the field, four quadrants were staked out, each one loaded with eggs and “super eggs” — the latter being the prize-winning eggs. Youngsters were categorized by age, with the youngest being offered the first chance at collecting eggs in their designated area.
From youngest to oldest, groups of children raced across the field, laughing, smiling and grabbing as many eggs as possible. It took group just a minute or two to completely clear their areas. 10,000 eggs — gone in a flash.
