Cooleemee’s Easter egg hunt on Saturday the 8th was cold, rainy and wet.

Understandably, many children stayed home where it was warm and dry, but the ones who were brave enough to show up had a great time.

Umbrellas came in handy by collecting the egg shells after goodies were found inside.

Three age groups had hidden winning tickets.  Each age group had three winners each. Easter baskets filled with goodies and prizes were handed to all winners.

Peter Rabbit was there to have pictures made with the children who were happy to see him, but for one little guy that pushed back instead, took his hat off and Petter Rabbit tossed the egg inside his hat for a treat.

After saying to a boy, “Wow, you have so many potatoes in your bucket!”, he said, “They are not potatoes!”

“Well, then what are they?”

“They are eggs!”

Without a doubt, each kid knew why they were there, to find and collect as many eggs as they could.

Each and everyone left with smiles including the parents because their children had fun.
