Dozens of volunteers helped organize the annual Edmonson County Parks and Rec Community Egg Hunt which featured 12,000 eggs, according to coordinators.
Parks Program Director John Kiernan said postponing the event from a rain-soaked Easter weekend last week didn't seem to affect the crowd.
"We've enjoyed big crowds ever since Parks and Rec started this event several years ago," he said. "This is just one of the many ways we try to provide fun events for our local kids."
Kiernan said the event wouldn't be possible without the many volunteers that join together to make sure the hunt is a success. Eggs are not only scattered across multiple baseball/softball fields, but they're filled with candy and other prizes.
Parks and Rec would like the thank the following sponsors and volunteers: Jag Kentucky, ECHS Beta Club/Drama Club, Americorp, Joy Curtis, Samantha Kiernan, Brownsville Missionary Baptist Church, and dozens of other unnamed volunteers.
More than 80 prize eggs were "hidden" across the fields that contained numbers matching an assortment of prizes. Those ranged anywhere from games to a drone, which was the grand prize.
