Eggs, games and candy highlight Saturday Easter events

Egg Week: The story behind the world's largest and most expensive Easter egg hunt

"They're like a vacuum cleaner", he said.

Well, maybe she will share some with Skylar.

Lila Grace Hunter, 7, Swoyersville, was also quick to explain her egg, with several letters of the alphabet on it.

"It's not what you get", Teeters said.

"We only had happy faces and filled baskets".

"Just so she can have some normalcy like a regular kid".

About 500 of the eggs are set aside as "prize eggs", and marked with a number and an eagle stamp. Adilynn said she might share some of her candy with her mom and step-father, but not with her 9-month-old sister, Skylar Harris.

Kyliee quickly spotted a FlipaZoo toy - a bear that can be flipped inside-out to become a dragon.

The event held Saturday was started by resident Marilyn Greer three years ago.

"I liked giving kids that were crying one of my prize eggs and I shared some of my eggs with people that missed out", Chartier said.

Of course, advocates for the animals do want them to be adopted into loving homes, but they stress that adopting a rabbit is a serious commitment of 10 to 14 years that requires a willingness to learn the ropes.

Lola Mahood, 6, nearly filled her large basket with eggs.

A little cold wasn't going to let 5-year-old Mara Hebel and father, Sean, from making it out from Northfield.

"Ellie was a little nervous, because of all the big kids", Maxwell said. Parents get kind of insane when it comes to egg hunting.

Not all the prizes were there for the taking.

The bikes were available for pickup at the fire station, along with a helmet for each victor.

The artificial turf is "not good for staking (hunt areas) and hiding eggs", said Shannon Leon, interim recreation and community resources manager with the city.

"That's how we serve this community, caring for the moms and dads, single moms, single dads, and it's a great way for us to be a blessing and give back on this Easter", Young said.

Families have made the annual hunt a tradition.
