The Biggest Easter Egg Hunt In Sioux Falls

The Biggest Easter Egg Hunt In Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Parents and kids were celebrating Easter one day early and there was a lot to be excited about. In a friendly game of competition, kids were ready to fill their empty baskets with many sweet treats.

It's the second year Red Door Church has organized this free event.

"Our heart as a church is to be in the community for the community.  This is strictly for fun; that all is just to enjoy an afternoon at the park," Red Door Church Lead Pastor Zach Bauer said.

They used around 10,000 eggs for one of the biggest Easter Egg Hunts in Sioux Falls.

"As a church, we purchase all the supplies and the eggs and then we have volunteer teams that stuff eggs for hours," Bauer said.

A team of around 20 organizers and volunteers helped make the event a success.

"You spend hours planning, you spend hours stuffing eggs and then it takes a matter of seconds to grab all these eggs so it's fun seeing families and kids coming out and having fun and having a smile on their face.  And that's why we do everything free. It's to provide for the community as a way to say, 'We're a church that loves people and we just want to have fun," Bauer said.

And their hard work paid off.

"I think it's awesome when a church can put an event on for the community and have it be based on Easter and fun and reach out to people," John Glasser said.

"Just having fun.  It's a beautiful day in McKennan Park. I think it's great that it's free so that everyone can enjoy it," Lauren Swenson said.

"It's really fun to hunt for eggs today and get the prizes. I like it because the sun is shining and it's not cold like the other past days," Veronic Stanichar and Katelyn Elrod, who took part in the Easter egg hunt, said.
