Hundreds of area children dug out their Easter baskets and made their way to a local park to hunt eggs.
The city of meridian hosted its annual Easter egg hunt Saturday at Highland Park. Children ages three to ten were invited to participate in the search for over three thousand eggs, which contained several different prizes.
"Just like having folks out here at the park," organizer Brandon Bridges said. "It's a beautiful day out here. They came out, they had fun, they had good family time. So we just encourage people to keep coming to the park. We're going to try to host more events here throughout the year."
Bridges says officials are already looking forward to hosting next year's Easter egg hunt at Highland Park.
