Five thousand Easter eggs were distributed around the Wapakoneta First United Methodist grounds by church members early Saturday morning in preparation for the community-wide Easter egg hunt.
Egg hunt committee chair Nan Stiger estimated 400-500 people, including, children, parents and grandparents, attended the hunt.
“It’s family. People just love to get together,” Stiger said. “It’s a tradition that you just don’t forget — egg hunting with your family.”
Describing it as a “multi-generational event,” Stiger said the egg hunt is an activity both young and old enjoy.
“I’ve seen some very, very proud grandparents with their little ones,” Stiger said. “That makes it extra exciting.”
