In just a few minutes, more than 41,000 Easter eggs were picked away, with nothing left behind but green grass, filled baskets and smiling faces. "That was amusing. I said, 'okay, go ahead".

Each egg contained either a small toy, candy, or a ticket.

"It has always been at the school", said Louise Minisan, who organized the event.

The artificial turf is "not good for staking (hunt areas) and hiding eggs", said Shannon Leon, interim recreation and community resources manager with the city. Get outside and enjoy this great weather right now!
