Hundreds join the scramble for eggs during Saturday hunt

After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary Easter Egg Hunt returned to Frances Anderson Playfield on Saturday to the delight of an estimated 400 children and their parents.

Kids ages 3 to 10 scrambled for plastic eggs, which were then exchanged for prizes at the prize desk. The event included a welcome message from Edmonds Mayor Mike Nelson, photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny, and a chance to visit with local firefighters.

Donations were also accepted for the Edmonds Food Bank and Washington Kids in Transition.

  1. Correction-The Edmonds Daybreakers Rotary president is actually Nikki Dickerson not Maggie Peterson.
    As one of the many volunteers at the Edmonds Easter Egg Hunt, it was such fun to watch the children race for the Easter eggs filled with candy and pose for pictures with our two Easter bunnies.
    A big thank you to Washington Kids in Transition and our South County Fire for participating! I really appreciate all you do for our community!
    Happy Easter!
