Lake Wilderness Easter Egg Hunt

The egg hunt took place on Saturday, April 20.

With over 20,000 eggs filled with candy, kids of all ages were bound to find an egg or two.

The annual Lake Wilderness Easter Egg Hunt took place last weekend on April 20. Things kicked off at around 9 a.m. with pictures with the Easter bunny, face painting and fun for all.

Once 1o a.m. struck, the kids were off on the hunt. There were sections roped off for different age groups, so that way everyone had an equal chance of finding an egg.

At the end of the crazy egg hunt, kids flocked to their parents to show them what they found.

In each egg there was an abundance of candy for everyone to enjoy. Once their eggs were cleared out, the plastic eggs were then recycled to use again next year.
