It was a mad dash for free candy at Kirksville's 34th annual Easter egg hunt. Within ten minutes, the kids collected all of their eggs and were onto taking pictures with the Easter bunny.
Organizers said they unloaded six 60 gallon totes full of plastic eggs onto Truman State's quad. The eggs were filled with candy, and this year, special toys such as bouncy balls, silly bands, and stickers.
"This is the first year that I've ever seen it rain on the Easter egg hunt but we still had a good turn out; we still had fun," said Robin Harden, a recreation specialist for the City of Kirksville.
"We had a lot of great volunteers this year, almost more than ever before."
Harden said Truman State's Women of Cardinal Key helped out with the event.
