WHEELING -

Although the temperatures weren't the best, the sun shining set the perfect scene for one, very large Easter egg hunt.

The annual Vineyard Church Easter Egg hunt mixes 30,000 eggs, thousands of kids, pounds of candy and hundreds of volunteers all into one massive hunt!  It was held at Wheeling Park Saturday afternoon and more than 1,000 kids from all ages attended.  There were three fields filled with eggs divided by age groups. A fun afternoon a week ahead of Easter to enjoy the sunshine, even the Easter bunny was on hand!

After filling their baskets, participants could turn their eggs back in but only to go on to fill them up with bags of candy in the White Palace.

WTRF is a proud sponsor of the egg hunt.
