"The weather turned out ideal, and we're just glad everybody could come out", he said, adding his plan is to come back even bigger and better next year.

"Usually it's cold and rainy, and sometimes we have snow", Rich Kern said.

"The kids all get together and hide all the Easter eggs and they supervise for all of the designated areas".

Around 300 people came to the egg hunt, making it the best turnout of the event's three-year existence, according Linette Ramos, the event's main organizer.

"Maybe we should have Easter in June", said volunteer Penny Redmon. For more information, call Stephanie Brady, Hodges Community Center, at 767-3706.

The Easter Egg hunt takes place at Oregon Trail Park, which is located near Geil Elementary and the Gering Armory. Atlantic Specialty Care Administrator, Kellie Jimerson, said that Frank Mitchell, with the Bicycle Store in Atlantic, is donating a bike, and helps Jimerson get other bikes purchased for prizes.

The first special needs children egg hunt happened on Ramos' farm. The eighth annual Clawson Easter Egg Hunt brought out families from all over Oakland County to partake in the tradition. The city of Biloxi's second Easter egg hunt of the season brought out a huge crowd. "The mall likes to have a petting zoo to go along with the egg hunt every year".

"It is put on by the Jackson Women of Today and is sponsored by a large list of local businesses", she said.

Numerous children who participated in Sunday's egg hunt were sighted.

The airport has plenty of parking.

The Rocky Mount Police Department will hold its third annual Easter Egg Hunt from 10 a.m.to 1 p.m. on Saturday at the Benjamin Franklin Middle School West Hall soccer field. There will be plenty of eggs and prizes. While the egg hunts didn't officially begin until around 1:15 p.m., families started showing up over an hour ahead of time with approximately 1,350 people total in attendance.

This year's hunt included more than 5,000 plastic eggs filled with chocolate candy, and visits from Bad Kitty, the Easter Bunny, Storytime Lady and Lucky the Duck.
