NORTH LIBERTY– The anticipation built slowly as more kids and parents made their way into the gymnasiums of the North Liberty Recreation Center.
Saturday, March 23, was the city’s annual Easter Egg Hunt, and while it wasn’t much of a hunt, it did begin promptly at 10:30 a.m. with the blast of a horn that startled many in attendance into action.
The North Liberty Recreation Department and the Optimist Club of North Liberty jointly sponsor the city’s egg hunt, which was held indoors this year at the North Liberty Recreation Center. Candy was spread out over the gymnasium floors and kids and parents lined up along the edges ready to pounce on the unsuspecting candy. In a matter of a minute or two, the event was over, except for the sharing of the goodies.
Assistant recreation department director Brian Motley said nearly $1,500 in candy was purchased for the event.
