Thousands enjoy Capitol Easter egg hunt

There was plenty of scrambling as children raced around the grounds trying to collect as many eggs as possible.

One parent described the activity as "fast and furious".

"It also helps them interact with other children like them", Phillips said.

About 10,000 eggs were hidden, and Adilynn found about 50 of them.

Each egg contained either a small toy, candy, or a ticket.

And in Plattsburgh, hundreds of kids raced to pick up as numerous 10,000 Easter eggs strewn around the University of Vermont Health Network, Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital as possible.

It was just like a normal Easter egg hunt. In previous years it was held at Solecito Park.

The park board has sponsored the event for 17 years, Hubbard said.

"There was a lot of people that were pushing but I was able to find some in the crowd", says egg hunter", Aiden Snyder. I tried to drag it out a little bit.

Egg Hunts should go perfectly as long as the heat doesn't melt any of the candy! They started cooking eggs around 8 a.m. Friday, and continued through most of the day.

"We try to fulfill any special need that they may have". "It's a win-win".

Heather Carlisle explained that this Easter egg hunt is more than an opportunity for the kids to get some treats.

"[The egg hunt] was great", said Britaney Raker as she sat on the grass beside her daughter, Serenity, as they looked through each egg. "It was a huge undertaking".

She said that when the hundreds of children were let loose on the course, she ran straight to the back, resisting the temptation to snatch up the first eggs she saw. The weekend was filled with egg-hunting adventures around the area, including hunts at Noblesville Baptist Church, Arcadia Brethen Church and Holy Spirit Parish at Geist. There was face painting and games offered by the Wheelie Mobilee from My Museum and by the Monterey Public Library.
