Hundreds of children spent a Sunday Saturday hunting for plastic eggs in a park, dozens of local businesses and in the Rec Center Swimming Pool. Parents stretched their smartphone batteries to the limits as they snapped pictures of their kids on egg hunts and meeting the Easter Bunny at various locations around town.
At Tefft Park, just north of the Rec Center, hundreds of youngsters gathered about 4,000 plastic eggs, cracked them open looking for winning tickets and then stood in line to collect prizes. After the egg hunt, some families entered the Rec Center to eat lunch with and be photographed with the Easter Bunny. After lunch, some kids participated in an “egg dive” in the small pool at the Rec Center.
Meanwhile, hundreds of kids hopped along the bunny trails that winded through dozens of Saline businesses. They collected eggs filled with goodies and had their trail maps stamped in hopes they might win one of four baskets filled with gifts donated by local businesses. Along the way, the Easter Bunny hugged many kids and posed for pictures. The annual Eggstravaganza was organized by the Saline Area Chamber of Commerce.
