FORT SMITH (KFSM)-The mayor’s annual Easter Egg Hunt took place Saturday (March 4) at Tilles Park.

Hundreds of kids and their parents made it out to the event, which got underway at 10 a.m. Eggs were scattered all around the park for the kiddos to find. They could also get their picture taken with the Easter Bunny. In addition to the egg hunt, kids enjoyed balloon hats, bounce houses and other activities.

“My favorite part about Easter is doing the Easter egg hunts,” Sophia Whitman, 7, said.

“We get candy!” 11-year-old Mari Ruiz said.

Organizers of the event said it took around 100 volunteers to make this event possible. Members of Grand Avenue Baptist Church helped with all the setup.

“We just partner with the mayor just to show the city that we love it,” Brad Lewter, volunteer said. “We’re not just a church that meets on Sunday. We live in Fort Smith, and we love our community.”

The festivities wrap up at 2 p.m.
