Horne said the Eagles are always looking for opportunities to serve the community, and the Easter egg hunt has been one of their most successful.
With Easter right around the corner people of all ages prepare for the holiday and with a little help from area organizations people practiced their Easter egg hunting a day early.
"Special eggs" with special messages, letting parents know their children had won a prize were also a part of the event including bicycles.
When the hunt started, the children excitedly sped away from their starting lines and quickly picked up Easter eggs. This year's egg hunt fell on a sunny Saturday afternoon, attracting hundreds of participants.
The event attempts to continue the Easter magic that museum volunteers remember from their childhood. Many businesses and individuals donated both money and prizes for the event.
With giggles and screams, baskets flying and buckets dragging the ground, almost 600 children to the age of 10 years enjoyed the Saturday afternoon, Mar.31, Easter egg hunt at Meadowbrook Park in Tehachapi. More than 100 children participated in the hunt.
In Melbourne, the Easter egg hunt went off with out a hitch at Werribee Mansion. Pictured is the younger age division as they hunt for the colorful eggs.
Letcher said the event was made possible through donations from the community and from last year's Halloween festival.
Walsh, who directed the egg hunts from behind a bullhorn, said the event depends on collaboration from the community.
She added that it's unbelievable to see the kids finally collecting eggs after all the preparation work.
"We've done it in the snow, where you put the eggs in a person's footprint", Carpenter said.
"I liked making the eggs".
Kids take off running to gather as much candy as they can and then eat it.
"It's kept going and it's getting bigger every year", he said. Get outside and enjoy this great weather right now!
