Hundreds of kids race for eggs at Grace Church in Lititz
It was an excellent day for an Easter egg hunt in Lititz on Saturday.
Or would that be an “egg-cellent” day?
The sun was shining, skies were blue and hundreds of children, from those barely walking to fourth- and fifth-graders, were lined up to hunt for Easter eggs at Grace Church on West Lincoln Avenue.
The Easter Bunny was there, posing for pictures. But he was too busy with photo opps to deliver the Easter eggs. Instead, a helicopter hovered overhead and dropped some 4,000 filled plastic eggs to the ground.
There were already about 8,000 eggs on the ground, placed there earlier by Easter Bunny helpers. As soon as the helicopter made its egg drop and began to fly away, the children pounced.
Ready, set, Go!
