Remnant Church hosts a community Easter egg hunt

News

A little rain outdoors didn’t stop thousands of children and their families from participating in Remnant Church’s massive Easter egg hunt at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds.

“We had to move inside because of the weather of course but that didn’t stop us, with this humongous facility. We had probably thousands of people here,” said Branden Norman, leader pastor at Remnant Church.

Children in attendance had the chance to hunt for over 30,000 Easter eggs, play carnival like games, and dance. For some children, the eggs contained prizes that were much more than a piece of candy.

“I won two bikes and I just went really fast and I got papers and I won this,” Myah Boyd said, Easter egg hunt participant.

Before leaving today’s Easter egg hunt, Boyd has simple words to describe how the event made her and thousands of other children feel.

“Really happy,” Boyd said.

Norman says seeing children leave with a smile on their face and helping out families celebrate the Easter holiday is what this event is all about.

“We had a family that said, ‘Hey listen, this is all for kids, there’s not a lot that’s just for kids and it was completely free, thank you so much’. So that’s what it was all for, the children and families,” Norman said.

This event also couldn’t be made possible without the help of dozens of volunteers and the help from sponsors.

“We were just the ones to step up and say ‘We’ll host it, who wants to partner with us? We’re going to do something crazy, we’re going to take over the fairgrounds,’ and it worked,” Norman said.

This egg hunt was completely free and Norman says that is thanks to donations.
