DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) - Decatur Parks and Recreation has partnered with several sponsors and Epic Church of Decatur to plan an Easter egg hunt that could potentially break records.
When Decatur Parks and Recreation invited Epic to participate in the EggStravaganza, they moved their separate event from Point Mallard Park to Ingalls Pavilion in order to join forces.
Epic Church is contributing 40,000 filled, plastic eggs to add to the 5,000 eggs already donated by the Decatur/ Morgan County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Those 5,000 will be dropped from atop Decatur Fire Department’s extended ladder truck, totaling 45,000 eggs for kids to retrieve.
In addition, Epic Church is also donating 200 razor-type scooters to join the other prizes at the free event on March 23, at Ingalls Pavilion from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
