They love to be able to see the community come together and enjoy a fun filled event with their families. This event started with around 4,000 eggs and has grown to over 12,000 eggs filled with candy and prizes. They provide an egg hunt for all ages and will have a special needs egg hunt again this year as well.
There are also drawings for prizes such as tickets from the Louisville Zoo, Indianapolis Speedway, as well as bicycles, and much more! They rely on the generosity of local churches, businesses, and individuals to help accomplish this fun, free event every year. Businesses and churches may set up booths for food or for their own drawing and giveaways.
This is a community event dedicated to children and children at heart. The church asks that there be no campaigning or distributing of political material at the event. This is a time to have fun and enjoy time with family, friends, and future friends!
