Seventeen-month-old Evon Patrick meets a larger-than-life Easter bunny at the 2014 Edmonds Easter Egg Hunt held on Frances Anderson playfield Saturday. “I was concerned that he might be afraid of the big bunny,” said mom Jessica Patrick, “but he just couldn’t keep his hand off the soft costume!” (Photos by Larry Vogel)
Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling kicked off the event that drew hundreds of children and families from throughout Puget Sound.
This year’s event was the first sponsored by the Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary. “We’re learning a lot,” said event coordinator Nancy McDonald. This year the event was broken into three separate eggs hunts for different age groups. “We wanted to make sure that the younger ones got a chance to fill their baskets too,” said McDonald. Here the younger age group (3-4 years) sifts through the grass for toys and candy.
The competitive edge was evident in the 8-10 year-old group, shown here awaiting the signal to begin.
