The fields were broken down into four groups;  the up to 4 year olds, 5 to 6 year olds, 7 to 9 year olds and the 10 to 12 year old group. Once the start was signaled, the kids quickly gathered the over 6000 eggs scattered about on the ground. Within a few minutes, the area was picked clean.

Along with the candy eggs, there were over 200 plastic eggs that contain tickets that could be turned in for a prize. There were 12 eggs that had tickets for the grand prizes. Some of the grand prizes were a basketball goal, MP3 player, Razor scooters, small scooters, and CD players.

Face painting was just one many things to do at this year's event.
