Eau Claire (WQOW) – On Easter weekend, we can’t forget about that popular tradition involving eggs. An annual Easter egg hunt brought hundreds of families out to Carson Park Saturday morning.
Organizers said the 10th Annual Chippewa Valley Easter Egg Hunt brought in a record number of families, topping out near 1,200 attendees. Not only were there egg hunts for the kids, organizers said the event added new exhibits including fishing and archery games. Children could also tour a cop car and fire truck.
“It’s been wonderful, because of how much the community has been involved. With different sponsors and different organizations, it really has been a true collaboration of community effort,” said Hannah Walsh, chair of the event.
Walsh said this is the first year the event will be donating funds raised. Organizers estimated donating $2,500 to the Boy Scouts.
