CHURUBUSCO â€” Prizes, family fun and community love just about sums up what was happening Saturday afternoon at Churubusco Town Park.
More than 600 people attended the first annual mEGGa Hunt sponsored by Christ Community Church.
â€śWe hid 8,000 eggs today and with this big of a turn-out weâ€™ll have to have twice as many next year,â€ť said Nathan VanHorn, member of CCC.
It only took five minutes for all ages groups to gather the eggs. But the waiting was worth it according to children and parents.
The major prizes ranged from Easter baskets, toys and even money.
But each egg contained candy, Bible verses and other prizes.
â€śWe are here to show our love to this community,â€ť said Terry Johnson, organizer and member of CCC.
The afternoon activities featured face painting, clowns, bunny jump tent, music, cotton candy, popcorn, drinks and balloons.
