Gorgeous weather for Easter Egg Hunt at The Village Green

By Brian O’Shea, Plateau Daily News

Clear skies and pleasant temps for the hundred or so folks who attended The Village Green’s egg hunt on Easter Sunday.

Kids lined the edge of the playground lawn waiting for the signal to commence the Easter Egg Hunt at The Village Green.

The festivities were initially planned for Saturday, but the decision was made to push it a day because of rain in the forecast.

The Easter Bunny and community volunteers hid approx. 2,000 eggs for kids at The Village Green.

“We are so pleased that we were able to reschedule the Easter Egg Hunt to a beautiful day,” said Shelby Batchelor, Community Event and Volunteer Coordinator at TVG. “We thought it was the best decision considering Saturday’s weather and we’re thankful to all who came out on Sunday.”

Three egg hunts began simultaneously; 0-4 year olds inside of the playground, 5-8 year olds on the playground lawn, and 9-11 year olds on the gazebo lawn.

Kids ready to rock the Easter Egg Hunt were separated by age into three areas at The Village Green.

2,000 eggs filled with treats were scattered throughout the park, and when kids were given the signal, it was a free for all.

It was a free-for-all after kids were given the signal to begin this year’s Easter Egg Hunt.

Hiding literally a ton of eggs is no small task, luckily the Easter Bunny had help from the community.

Children carried off their Easter plunder with smiles on their faces.

“We had five amazing volunteers that made this event a success by helping to stuff the Easter eggs with candy and helping to hide them on the lawn,” said Batchelor. “We are so grateful for our volunteers who give their support and time to make our community events successful.”
