The threat of rain and already soaked fields prompted the Williamson County Parks & Recreation to reschedule local Easter egg hunts. However, when Tuesday evening came around, children in Fairview attended the annual Easter egg hunt with unspoiled excitement.
At least 150 children ages 0 to 10 and parents lined up alongside the edge of the Fairview High soccer field, ready for the horn to blow.
With buckets of all sizes and shapes, participants bolted at the sound of the horn and within two minutes a couple of thousand colored, plastic eggs filled with candy and small toys disappeared from the grassy field and into the baskets of happy children.
Sitting patiently, the Easter bunny readied itself for photos with the enthusiastic children, although some of the younger ones seemed apprehensive when confronted with the big white rabbit that moved on its own.
Overall, it was another success for the Easter bunny, even though it made some children cry, and the WCPR staff. Happy Easter!
