M’ville Easter Egg Hunt down to an egg-zact science

MARYSVILLE – Hundreds of children turned out for the Marysville Easter Egg Hunt Saturday at Jennings Park.

The mayhem of most such hunts was kept to a minimum as only small groups are let into the three age-category areas at a time. Lines formed at the start of each hunt area.

Children also are limited to eight eggs each. Some contained prizes for items such as chocolate bunnies or even Easter baskets. Parks director Jim Ballew, City Councilwoman Donna Wright and other city employees handed out the prizes.

Booths were set up to give kids other fun things to do. Some played air hockey while others pinned the cotton tail on the bunny or had pictures taken with the real Easter Bunny.

Items were collected for the Marysville Community Food Bank, and seeds were given out so participants could have their own gardens at home.
