JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – Tons of children lined up against the Allen Park fencing Saturday morning, ready to participate in the annual Jamestown Easter Egg Hunt, which was held outside for the first time in many years.
Hundreds came out to the hunt which had a slew of eggs, prizes, and of course candy.
The event was divided into sections for different age groups, each with their own selection of prizes to be found.
If a child found a prize egg they could select an item from a table of goodies, and four lucky children could find the golden egg with a very special prize.
The golden eggs let a child win a large studded animal or even a bike, depending on their age. This year there were two bike winners, one of which found the golden egg atop a tree when leaving the easter egg hunt.
“I found a golden egg in a tree when we were leaving,“ explained 9-year old Aniyah.
“We were ready, we were leaving,“ stated Aniyah’s Grandmother JoAnna Holland. “And she found it, that’s so cool
“Everybody ran fast, at least he got really lucky,“ explained Aaron, Father of Brayden.
“2023 Gold Prize,“ stated Brayden.
Of those that we talked to, many were happy to enjoy the nice weather at Allen Park.
