The City of Tallahassee’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Affairs Department hosted the 56th Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Myers Park.
Children of all ages were invited to participate in the egg hunt to win prizes including backpacks, skateboards and coupons.
“In each area there are 10 eggs that have a grand prize in them,” Devin Bruner, Athletic and Event Supervisor, said. “Each child can get a prize from each selected age group and have a chance to win.”
Bruner also said he sees the event growing since he started assisting with the event three years ago.
Some workers and volunteers were seen enjoying themselves.
Lane Mosteller, Special Events Assistant, was at the event since the early morning preparing and making sure the event ran smoothly.
“I’ve been here since seven in the morning setting up and doing arts and crafts,” Mosteller said. “Working under special events I know how much work they put into it. It starts off as a cluster and turns into a great event.”
Games, rides, arts and crafts were some of the fun events taking place at the family event. For some families it’s a routine every Easter.
Marquitta Williams, a Tallahassee native, has been bringing her grandson to the Easter Egg hunt for the past three years.
“I love this event,” Williams said. “He's my only grandson and because he’s an outgoing child, he can come out here [and] interact with the other kids.”
Children also had an opportunity to take pictures with the Easter Bunny.
