An estimated 2,200 children and family members packed the youth center gym to enjoy this festive Easter event. Unlike the traditional egg hunt, children followed a path along colorful stations decorated in the four seasons theme. Each stop along the way featured costumed characters, who handed out candy-filled eggs and paused for photos. The event was organized according to age.
1 year olds – 10-10:30 a.m.
2-3 year olds – 10:30-11 a.m.
4-5 year olds – 11-11:30 a.m.
6-8 year olds – 11:30 a.m.-12 p.m.
Royal Crest Dairy sampled their delicious beverages and handed out 1/2 gallons of milk or chocolate milk to eager takers.
The Chick-fil-A cow, decked out in Easter attire, posed for photos at every opportunity. There was quite a bit of ham in that bovine.
