Parish "J.R." Johnson turns in the "lucky egg" he found to Gracie Jackson, the chairperson of the Easter egg hunt.
In addition to the many goodies within the plastic eggs, families were given a raffle ticket for each child participating to win additional prizes, Amador said.
A sea of smiling faces descended on the Ott Road ballpark in Stevensville on Friday, March 30 for the annual Easter egg hunt. Some exhausted egg hunters were carried away by the parents. Many businesses and individuals donated both money and prizes for the event.
This is the second year for the beeping Easter egg hunt at Korean War Veterans Park for kids with visual impairments.
Egg hunters were split up by age group, with the youngest children going first, followed by the older children.
One of the pastors wanted to still greet the families and without an Easter egg hunt, passed out bags of eggs.
Letcher said the event was made possible through donations from the community and from last year's Halloween festival.
Silas had also enjoyed the craft portion of the event, quick to point out two colorful eggs, still wet with paint. "I think they need more signs to let people know where the age groups are, but I think it was better down here, so the kids aren't running downhill trying to stop and catch eggs, so they don't fall".
Willow Britt, 8, who was waiting for the Easter bonnet competition to begin, was the only kid who seemed to have an actual Easter Fools' Day story, albeit a small one, about her father, John Britt.
"I'm excited to get a lot of eggs", Vera said.
The hunt was held at Northwest Middle School, and offered 3,000 filled eggs ready to be scooped up in baskets on three different fields. "Even with the bad weather it was great".
