When they arrived, each child was also given a ticket for a chance to win door prizes.

The four age groups for the Easter egg hunt were; ages 2 and under, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-11. The four separate areas had over 4,800 eggs scattered on the ground.

Each egg contained candy like skittles, gummy dinosaurs, star bursts, and tootsie rolls while some contained tattoos and stickers. There were prize eggs mixed in for each age group.

Cunningham Volunteer Fire Department Captain William Jackson said, “It takes our volunteers several days to get everything ready to today’s Easter egg hunt. This is something we do to give back to the community that does so much for us.”

When the Easter Egg hunt started, the kids took off across the field grabbing as many eggs as they could. After all the eggs were picked up, everyone began the process of opening eggs to discover it’s contents and hoping for a prize ticket. Everyone was laughing and having a good time opening their eggs.

The prizes were Easter buckets filled with candy and goodies. The grand prizes were a crayola paint maker kit, large Easter Basket, a football and a giant crayola color capsule.

“Everything went really well considering the cold weather,” stated Jackson. “I’m glad so many people came out and had a good time.”
