Kids make quick work out of Easter egg hunts in Billings

Christopher Hallmark, special events coordinator for Odessa, said he wasn't exactly sure for how long the Easter egg hunts had been running, but was very familiar with it. "They have a good time and it's great".

The egg hunt actually featured several different hunts for different age groups, ensuring that all of the children had an equal chance to find at least one egg.

Egg hunts have become a part of Easter tradition, but not many in Kern County get their eggs from the sky.

Some of the bigger Easter egg hunts in the area according to the pre-hunt announcements included The Rock Church in Laurel with 50,000 eggs and Faith Evangelical in Billings with 25,000.

"A lot of chaos in a minute", Tebbetts said with a smile about his thoughts of the hunt.

BEMIDJI - Hundreds of children with their Easter baskets hunted for colorful eggs Saturday morning at Bemidji High School.

Jennings had 13 points in 17 minutes, while Bogdanovic added 11 points. "We did so much better defensively the last two games". Including the playoffs, Washington has won five straight against the Hawks. "He needs to learn how to take a loss like a man".

The event was inspired to "give back to the community during the 150th year anniversary celebration of Canada", he said.

Children of all ages came and crowded around in a circle as they waited for the signal to start looking for eggs.

"We're having fun. We're about to eat, and we're just waiting on the egg drop", says Ron Thomas, who brought along his wife and three kids. This was her first time enjoying the Easter egg hunt.

Hailie Fisher says, "I am totally blind and have been every since birth". "We've been in past years and we always enjoy it", mom Kelly Lilly said.

The 4-6 age group followed, and then 7-9 and the older kids. "I only got five eggs but if you don't get something that you don't want, be happy for the other kids".

Young Dean Knox, 2, was also out there, but he didn't let rules or enclosures keep him from grabbing the coveted Easter eggs. It has grown to 21,000 eggs, Rashott said.
