TYLER, TEXAS (KETK) — Our radio partners 95.3/ 102.3 The Breeze hosts the biggest Easter egg hunt in Tyler. Thousands of eggs were hidden at Bergfeld Park for a great cause.
"We are close to 40 thousand Easter eggs, we even gave gold eggs which could contain One Direction tickets so someone is going to walk out of here really happy," says Jammin' Jimmy Olsen, The Breeze.
Now that's an Easter Bonanza. Bergfeld Park in Tyler was packed with families for Breezester 2014.
Kids tells us they love being at the egg hunt because they get to have fun with their family, play in the bounce houses, play games and hunt for eggs.
It's an egg hunt benefiting the March of Dimes: March for Babies. "This is going to be the biggest ever, bounce houses, The March of Dimes of course, making sure babies com in this world healthy and there's nothing better than a healthy bouncing baby that's a bundle of joy is it not?," said JJO.
We spoke with Director Vicki Hardgrove of March of Dimes of East Texas. "We focus on birth defects, and prematurity and we are bringing down the prematurity rate by research and advocacy and education. We are getting so much support for the March of Dimes and for the special weekend we are celebrating.
There was live entertainment, vendors, raffles, games, fair food and plenty of smiles. Folks with The Breeze tells they are thankful for all their sponsors.
The Breezester Bunny made special appearance to wish everyone a Happy Easter.
The weather was warm and sunny making it a beautiful day for all, what more can you ask for on a blessed weekend.
