West Side Nut Club hosts 66th Annual Easter Egg hunt with 13,000 Easter eggs

Posted: Updated:

Over 1,000 people enjoyed the warmer temps on Saturday at the West Side Nut Club's annual Easter Egg Hunt.

This marks the 66th year for the event held at Mater Dei High School.

The event is free and open to the public.

Kids pre-school-age through 3rd grade quickly collected over 13,000 Easter eggs filled with candy and prizes.

"It's something that the kids have looked forward to," says Brian Woods. "When I was a kid, I looked forward to it and we've been doing it for 66-years. To see the kids when they get done and have the candy and go through all their eggs, it's a really neat experience."

All 13,000 of the eggs had been picked up in about a minute.
