QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM)--- Downtown Quincy churches and businesses hosted the second annual Ecumenical Easter egg hunt.
Nearly 200 children, ranging in age from toddlers to fifth graders, lined up to hunt for eggs scattered in Washington Park. The eggs held candy and prizes.
Event organizer Reverend Ivan Greuter said holding the event brought many people of all denominations together to celebrate the Christian meaning of Easter.
"We have an opportunity to show the community that all the churches cooperate for the common mission, which is sharing the love of Jesus, and we have an opportunity to spread the message wider," Greuter said.
The Easter egg hunt was also sponsored by the Historic Quincy Business District.
