Children gathered around the yellow tape at Arlington Airport Field waiting for the second they could run out onto the field and snatch up the thousands of Easter eggs during Arlington's annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 4.

At approximately 11 a.m. city officials gave the word and the hundreds of kids cleared the thousands of eggs in less than a couple of minutes.

Arlington's recreation manager Sarah Lopez said kids enjoy racing out for the Easter eggs every year, and families enjoy having a quality Easter event to come to.

Parent Tara Coleman said she loves the event and comes every year.

"In this [egg hunt] I think the kids get more opportunity to get the eggs while some of them, they just wait a long time and it's not as fun," she said.

Tara Coleman's daughter Kaylyn said she enjoys racing after the eggs. "I get to play with my sister and it's just really fun for me," she said.

The event also brings the community together, said Tara Coleman. "The kids enjoy it, but we also come down and meet a lot of people and talk," she said.

Firefighters, police officers, fire trucks and police vehicles were also available at the Arlington Airport Field for kids to come check out and inspect.

"This is our third year doing the Easter Egg Hunt and we like to come back every year because it's not as crowded [as other egg hunts] and its fun for the kids to come see the police and fire trucks," said parent Amanda Wolf.

Daughter Ashlyn Wolf said she enjoyed going out to grab the eggs and finding the prizes inside.

Many volunteers and the Arlington United Church help out with refreshments, drinks and running the event. Cascade Valley Hospital and the city of Arlington sponsored the Easter Egg Hunt.
