Thousands attend helicopter Easter egg drop in Killeen

Children of all ages participated in Longmont's seventh annual Easter Egg Hunt and Festival in Roosevelt Park. "It brings the community together", Cheyenne's dad, Roger Young, said of the event.

The big event was the egg hunt, but there were other fun things to do like dying eggs the old fashion way, sack races and even getting the chance to meet the Easter Bunny and have a picture made with him.

Ariyah Bears, 1, puts an egg in her basket during the 17th Annual Easter Egg Hunt presented by RP Broadcasting on Saturday morning at Bemidji High School.

This is the eighth year the hunt has been held in Gantry Park and the fourth year in Queensbridge Park, but this year for the first time it will be run by the new LIC community center that opened early this year, Renew Queens. "I have a 2-year-old", Ovalle said. He believed this year's event was much improved over the inaugural hunt. The Saturday turnout, helped by the mid-April warm weather, has the group planning to bring the egg hunt back to Gregory Park next year.

The Salvation Army of Huntsville/Madison County is partnering with Parkway Place Mall for its first indoor Easter Egg Hunt.

The Animal Egg Hunt was a little different from a normal Easter egg hunt.

43,000 eggs filled with candy and prizes were dispersed around the park for kids to find. They were prepared to attend the hunt along with their children, Macy, seven, and Cooper, five, as long as "it was just sprinkles", but a continued torrential downpour likely would've given them pause.

While most eggs were filled with chocolate, some were "special" and could be redeemed for various prizes, from Dairy Queen cones to Easter baskets, she said.
