The rules were explained before the hunt began. The hunt for Easter eggs that is. Children filled the yard of a home on Parkway April 14, filling their baskets with hand-dyed eggs. Sharon Gahagan and her family started this Easter Egg Hunt tradition 35 years ago. The number of children grew from nine little girls to over 400 children of all ages. The reason for the hunt was to create something to look forward to for families to enjoy. While the hunt isn’t held at her home anymore, Sharon said she’s glad the tradition continues.
