Thousands of kids attend Crossing Easter egg hunt

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - Some local kids got a head start hunting Easter eggs at Quincy's Flinn Stadium Friday night. But this year, the Easter bunny delivered the eggs from above.

A helicopter dumped thousands of eggs onto the football field to eagerly awaiting kids and their parents for The Crossing's third annual Easter egg hunt.
Kids scrambled to pick up more than 15,000 colorful eggs that were scattered all over the football field.

"It was a wonderful experience that my niece, nephew, and son loved. They liked watching the helicopter drop all the stuffed animals and bunnies out and all the eggs," Britney Lair said.

"The kids are so in awe of it because they've never seen that many eggs in one spot," Connie Walbring said.

Some of the eggs not only had candy, some had coupons for even bigger prizes, ranging from stuffed animals to a new bicycle.
