Local kids had a hopping good time Saturday morning at local egg hunts in Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace.
In Mountlake Terrace, Participants were grouped into four age groups: three and under, four to six, seven to nine and 10 to 12. As a nearby fire engine sounded its horn, each group took off to collect as many eggs as they could.
The event was sponsored by the Cheeseburger Babies Foundation, the charitable arm of Red Onion Burgers. More than 12,000 eggs filled with candy and other prizes were placed on the field.

In Edmonds, about 400 people attended the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Edmonds Lutheran Church.
According to Pastor Tim Oleson, there were 12,000 candy-filled plastic eggs “hidden” all around the church property.
Since April Fool’s Day and Easter fall on the same day this year, the Pastor said, “I love it. I’m preaching tomorrow. I’m going to try to work in some April Fool’s jokes throughout. I don’t know how much people will appreciate it, but I like it.”
