CAMP HUMPHREYS — The eggs and candy went quickly, but the smiles and laughter stayed a while during the Eggstravaganza here April 23.
Hundreds of children took part in the festivities at Zoeckler Field, beginning with egg-gathering at 11 a.m. Children excitedly snatched the 15,000 eggs, each filled with candy or a toy, and stuffed them in the plastic bags provided by the event sponsor, Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation.
For those under 6, the eggs were in plain sight, but those in the 7-t0-10 age group had to search for theirs.
In addition to the chocolates and other candy, attendees were treated to music, inflatables, free food, and visits from the Easter Bunny and other oversized animals.
