Rainbow color eggs, which filled the field outside of the 82nd Airborne Division Memorial Museum were collected by over 40 toddlers, March 23rd during an annual Easter Egg Hunt. With colorful jackets, mittens and hats, the cold air did not slow down a group of energetic children wobbling and walking to collect eggs.
Toddlers between the ages of 1 to 4 years old were able to attend the event and hunt for eggs filled with different surprises.
“We have been doing this for over 11 years. (In) each egg a child can find candy, stickers or toys,” said John W. Aarsen, director of 82nd Airborne Division Memorial Museum
“We want the smaller children to be able to collect eggs, in a safe environment, without the parents worried about them getting run over by the older youth, so that is why we do two separate Easter Egg
Hunts for different age groups,” Aarsen said.
Parents with toddlers lined up on one side of the field waiting for the blow horn to sound off and start the hunt. After toddlers and parents completed the hunt, there was an opportunity for pictures with the Easter bunny.
