Clear skies shine through for Central Park egg hunt

The rain held off on Saturday morning as kids of all ages dashed out in the marked area at Central Park, scooping up as many colorful Easter eggs as they could find. Two-year-old Chloe Anderson found more than 20 eggs during her hunt - with a little help from Mom. "We come down here every year,' Chloe's mom Kayla Anderson said. She and her husband, Robert, drove from Fruitport for some egg-hunting fun. "She actually did pretty well for her first time at the Easter egg hunt.'

Employees from the event’s sponsors Coldwell Banker Woodland Schmidt and Independent Bank scattered 5,000 eggs stuffed with candy, stickers, tattoos or a ticket that children could turn in for a larger prize. A grand prize of a large, filled Easter basket were given out to each of the four age groups of 2 years and under, 3-4 years, 5-7 years and 8-10 years.

“Everything went awesome — there was no rain, no snow,” Paula DeYoung of Coldwell Banker Woodland Schmidt said. “We do our best to make it kid-friendly and divide up the age groups so that the little kids don’t get trampled. We have an awesome turnout every year, regardless of what the weather is like. “
