Despite having to dodge rain drops, hundreds of kids, parents and grandparents came out Saturday morning to Memorial Park to enjoy the annual Easter egg hunt sponsored by the Jefferson City Parks and Recreation Department and the Jefferson City Jaycees.

Kids ages 2-7 enjoyed the thrill of running in designated areas gathering as many eggs as they could. Those who couldn't get eggs during the hunt still got eggs thanks to the Easter Bunny who made sure everyone came away with something.
