Carson Park hosts annual Easter egg hunt

Carson Park hosts annual Easter egg hunt

The egg hunt held at Naperville's Knoch Knolls Park had to be navigated with the aid of a flashlight.

The crowd was a little smaller than the previous year, about 250 people showed up as the rain started pouring down, but when the siren blew, the children and their parents were off like a bolt of lightning.

"It was like a big old tornado trying to get me", said Dayanara Bayel, 9.

The day was bright and warm, which was a relief to Jones, who said she had been anxious the day might not be so nice.

"We've been having egg hunts for 20 years", Hallmark said. The Kroc Center joined the effort to put on the event.

Around 45,000 eggs filled with candy were dropped from a helicopter to the delight of thousands of children in Canada on Saturday.

A press conference is planned for Friday in Bahrain, though a McLaren spokesman said he was not in the Kingdom. After all, he's missed only a handful of races since Abu Dhabi a year ago , and he's as fit as a fiddle.

The prizes and candy for the eggs come from a variety of groups as well as from the city of Jamestown. He has been doing this for years and it never gets old.

"We would also like to thank the Gold Country Fairgrounds for donating the use of the field for the hunt", Miller said.

"It's a little bit bigger than previous year, but the weather I think made that happen". Typically their Easter falls later than the mainstream Easter due to a different calendar, but for this year the dates line up. Segala doesn't remember it raining more than half a dozen times. "I like the idea that they divide the eggs". It's traditionally been at Lum Park in east Brainerd but was moved this spring because of a recent utility construction project's disruption to the soil.

"I like that there was a limit of eight eggs", said Elenor Gradaromero, 11, of DeKalb. "I just love seeing the happy faces on the children", Webber said.

Walnut Street Church of Christ found a creative way to celebrate Easter. "They have a lot of good stuff here".

"My favorite thing about Easter is that we get to learn about God and we learn that he died on the cross for all of us", said Mackenzie Stauble.
