City Easter Egg Hunt
Date posted - April 21, 2014
First of all, I would like to thank the city, volunteers, and sponsors for putting on the Egg Hunt for all the kids.
This was the first year I had my 4 year old attend. I think it will be our last. The signs saying “No parents allowed” inside the roped off area were very clearly ignored by a LOT of people. My daughter got bumped and pushed by lots of parents trying to shuffle their kids around. I was looking forward to a lot of fun and made sure to remind my daughter to be kind of everyone and to not fight. Most parents were treating it like a competition. I have other children that will be old enough to be in the 2-4 category next year, but I’m not willing to put them in potential harms way over a few eggs with candy in them.
The bike raffle was fun. When kids won, everyone clapped. That was nice to experience.
