Around 500 kids hunt for over 10,000 eggs

Kids and parents arrived en masse to hunt for Easter eggs Saturday morning.

The Hannibal Early Birds Kiwanis club hosted its 30th Annual Easter Egg Hunt on the Hannibal-LaGrange University campus.

Before hunting, there was a raffle with tons of prizes, top prizes being a T.V. and a PlayStation 4 game system.

Each child was given a ticket and families were given the opportunity to buy extra for more chances to win.

After the raffle, around 500 kids, along with their parents, gathered outside to hunt for over 10,000 Easter eggs, which is the largest turnout the event has seen.

"It's just amazing that we had this large of a turn out. We didn't expect it'd be this many people," said Early Birds Kiwanis Vice President Kevin Lionberger.

Any money made from tickets goes to fund the many other Kiwanis community activities and charities.
