The children eyed the bags of candy supplied by members of Trinity Church that were passed out to all of them.


Easter baskets created by members of Eco Harmony were ready for the lucky winners to receive at the end of the hunt.



Children danced to the beat of the music and chased soap bubbles as part of the party.





Children and their parents enjoyed several Easter related games: Garden Ring Toss, Egg Toss Madness, creating art and wearing Easter Bunny Ears as they waited for the hunt to begin. Each winner was presented several pieces of candy. The UNICEF Club sponsored their booths.

Approximately 1,000 plastic eggs were filled with candy. Only a limited few eggs held the rainbow winning tickets for the decorated Easter baskets.




The colorful eggs were scattered in the grass in each of the three zones for the children to find.

Suddenly the areas were full of children picking up all of the eggs that they could hold in the hands.  Only the littlest one were allowed baskets to hold their eggs.



Family members both young and old each stopped to visit with the Easter Bunny on the sunny spring day.
