Kids make quick work out of Easter egg hunts in Billings

Shayln Sheppard, 10, said Easter is important to her because she gets to celebrate Jesus' resurrection and have fun during the holiday. The four fields were divided by age groups, ranging from infants to 12-year-olds.

Following the egg hunt, Main Street Square's spring festival had families busy with a petting zoo, face painting, and of course pictures with the Easter Bunny himself.

The event cost $5 a child, and the money goes to Strive's children services.

Local kids celebrated Easter this year by hunting for candy-filled eggs, visiting with the Easter Bunny and taking part in other activities across Macomb and St. Clair counties. We're here due to their support. "And it's just great fun to be able to open up the church, to be able to invite people, their kids, their family, their children to come and to just have a really good time celebrating this awesome Easter weekend", said Pastor John.

"What better way than to have a Easter hunt to do that", said Jennifer Kleen, Roosevelt Park Minot Zoo Crew Executive Director. Hours are ten to six through the Monday and are expected to extend throughout the remainder of the summer.

Since then chocolate eggs have become popular and these are given on Easter Sunday, brought by the Easter Bunny.

Extra special Easter eggs were hunted on Saturday.

Egg hunters were given a Cadbury goodie bag, a train ride and the opportunity to find "special eggs" with extra prizes inside. "The victor takes home a basket full of Easter goodies which includes chocolate bunnies, edible chocolate eggs, marshmallows and carrot cake; I'm looking forward to a great time".

The First Christian Church started their morning with an Easter egg hunt for all the little kids. "This is the guy that created us, so we want everybody to understand that, and most of the kids already do", Ronquillo said.

"They loved the Bubbles and the jump houses".
