SAN ANTONIO -- 17,000 eggs— and they were gone in a flash at the 6th Annual Easter Egg Hunt held Saturday, March 30 at Concordia Lutheran Church on Huebner Road. Last year about 1,200 attended the event that is always open to the public. This year, that number has grown.
Kids carrying ribboned Easter baskets and dressed in bright shades of pink, green, yellow and purple scampered over the field in search of the colorful treasures. And after the "hunt" came free frozen ice cream sandwiches. "Freddy's increased the number of ice creams to 1500," said Assistant Director Emily Owen. They were all out, lickety split. She thinks about 2,200 to 2,400 people showed up for this round. Pastor Bill Tucker said they'll need 30,000 Easter eggs next year. You'll find no kid disputing that fact.
