Hundreds of kids battle for Easter eggs at Nevis hunt

Email News Alerts

More than 600 kids, in a crowd of 2,000 people, lined the sidewalk along Nevis' Muskie Park Saturday in an Easter egg hunt that would rival another one held out east in a big White House.


A block-long, knee-high wave of pre-school humanity surged through the rope lines at 1 p.m. to grab up 10,000 plastic eggs scattered throughout the park.

"Don't get trampled," cautioned Nevis teacher Amy Schroeder, who was acting as a crowd control cop for the brief run-for-the eggs.
