Caraway Easter egg hunt draws crowd

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

It took less than two minutes for the young hunters to clean sweep the Caraway Park of 5,000 eggs.

No one went home empty handed.

Over 300 children gathered for the annual Easter egg hunt sponsored by the Caraway Park Commission and city.

The hunt was held Saturday. The weather was nice for the young people. Mayor Barry Riley said last year they had to wear coats.

Children were excited when they got the "money eggs." This year 100 eggs contained $1 bills and 20 eggs had $5 bills.

Several prize eggs had tickets for Easter filled baskets.

No one went home without a prize. Prize tables in different age groups were set up and the children lined up to receive a prize.
