30th annual Easter egg hunt at Georgia state fairgrounds | News
A little rain Saturday didn't stop kids from enjoying an Easter egg hunt at the Georgia State Fairgrounds.
The 30th annual event was moved inside due to rain, but families still enjoyed the Easter picnic and huge prize giveaways.
Around 500 kids participated in the egg hunt. Two lucky people had the platinum egg winning $160. There was also a golden egg prize drawing worth $50.
Motorcycle club, The Flaming Knights, organized the event. They say it's a great way give back to the community.
"My father started this event over 30 years ago and we believe that kids are our future. We want to show them that they can be a part of something positive," said Eric Quick, President of Macon Flaming Knights.
Another Flaming Knight, Bobby Somerville added, "The community has to raise the kids. So we need to come out and get together. Do things together. It makes life so much easier."
Along with cash prizes, there was also a cell phone giveaway.
