Annual event features some 50,000 eggs

Hundreds of area boys and girls will assemble Saturday morning beginning at 10 a.m. at the Miami High School practice field for a family-friendly event featuring bouncy inflatables, free hot dogs, candy, water, and more. Called the “Egg-stravaganza Hunt,” the event has grown each year. Rainy weather hampered last year's celebration, but the forecast for Saturday is warm and sunny.

Registration begins at 10 a.m. where participating children will receive wrist bands. The first hunt kicks off at 11:30 a.m. for children 3 years and younger. At noon, children pre-kindergarten to first grade will have their turn. Second and third graders will begin at 12:30 p.m., followed by fourth the fifth graders at 1:00 p.m.

There are free hot dogs and water for everyone attending. Church members have been busy the last several weeks filling 50,000 plastic eggs with treats and prizes. The event is absolutely free and is an outreach ministry of Miami First Assembly whose slogan is “The Church that Connects.” The church is pastored by Rev. Raymond Frizzelle.
