Merry-Making Egg Hunters Take to Wilkowski Park Saturday for Easter Festivities


Dozens of cars lined Rochester Street as hundreds of young hunters, baskets in hand, took to Wilkowski Park in Rainier on Saturday for an Easter egg hunt. 

More than 2,000 eggs were hidden underneath trees and in the pinecone-laden field of the park as kids rushed out from the starting line to scoop up as many plastic eggs — filled with candy, gift cards and redeemable prizes — as they could. 

The event was planned by local nonprofit We Love Rainier, Washington, and many families came out for the affair, which lasted in whole only about 15 minutes. 

Rewards varied, from simple chocolates and sweets to full-on toy sets that were redeemed at the nearby gazebo. Some eggs even had certificates for a free cookie courtesy of the Main Street Cookie Company inside them. 

Families also took pictures with the always colorful and one-of-a-kind Easter Bunny.
