Kids Hunt for 50,000 Easter Eggs in Miami

Updated:
Great weather for families to enjoy a fun filled day at Riverview park for Miami's first Easter Community celebration.

Hundreds of kids race to collect their share 50,000 eggs hidden in the grass.

A total of three hunts for children up to age twelve were launched at the same time.

"I'm gonna run as fast as I can to get all of ‘em,” says five year old Henry Vanantwerp.

"I love Easter because it has lots of Easter eggs. Then when we get home we're gonna paint Easter eggs,” says five year old Sam Nesbold.

"My strategy is just run around. Get as many eggs as you can. I didn't collect many but I had a fun time,” says ten year old Bladen Hart.

All in all the eggs were gobbled up within about three minutes.


The First Assembly of God has been hosting the egg hunt for five years, but this year decided to involve the entire community of Miami.

About twenty area businesses provided support from Easter treats to vending booths.

Many families took advantage of the beautiful weather and free hot dogs, picnicking out in the park.
