Egg enthusiasts

Crowds of children and adults wait (somewhat) patiently for the countdown at the 2013 Community Egg Hunt, made possible by volunteers from the Columbia Gorge Fellowship of Churches and donations from local businesses and individuals. More than 7,000 eggs were filled and hidden and each child received a treat-filled goodie bag. Occurring simultaneously was the annual Children’s Safety Fair, with fire trucks, police cars and information booths all at Jackson Park.

Egg enthusiasts

Crowds of children and adults wait (somewhat) patiently for the countdown at Saturday’s Community Egg Hunt, made possible by volunteers from the Columbia Gorge Fellowship of Churches and donations from local businesses and individuals.

More than 7,000 eggs were filled and hidden and each child received a treat-filled goodie bag. Occurring simultaneously was the annual Children’s Safety Fair, with fire trucks, police cars and information booths all at Jackson Park.

The sponsoring churches made sure that each child attending the egg hunt went home with a goody bag by stuffing 800 bags with candy, prizes, stickers and activity booklets.

Sparky the Fire Dog entertained the crowd of youngsters from the fire truck’s tower, high above Jackson Park.

Toddlers and their adult helpers scrambled for the hidden-in-plain-sight eggs in the youngest section of the 2013 Community Egg Hunt at Jackson Park. It took exactly 3 minutes for the various age groups to scour the park’s grassy hillside of all eggs. More than 7,000 eggs were filled by volunteers of the 14 sponsoring churches for the event.
