Families were lined up and ready about a half hour before the start of the race.

Kids attacked the park's fields as the race started just after 9 a.m Saturday morning.

They spread out to find more than 15,000 eggs put out by volunteers.

In addition to the hunt, families can also take part in a raffle to win prizes.

All money raised from raffle ticket sales goes back to Newton Park.

Jessica Tyler brought here son to the egg hunt.

“We've heard a lot of things about the Newton Park Easter egg hunt, and we just kinda wanted to try it out, and he's two now, so he can finally get it a little more, he's a lot more excited.”

It takes about $1,800 to put on the hunt, which is free for families.

Volunteers pay for the event out of their own pockets.

“We just like to put it on every year as a thank you to everyone who's been instrumental in Newton Park,” said Robbie Lightfoot, Director Of Corporate Partnerships at Newton Park.
