Not your typical Easter Egg hunt

By Molly Reuter - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The rain Sunday morning did not stop an East Texas church from having one of the biggest Easter Egg hunts we've ever seen.  Normally, Church On The Move in Tyler has their Easter Egg hunt outside, but this year because of the rain church members just piled more than 25,000 eggs in one room.  Children were literally swimming through the mound of eggs filling up one bag after the other.

"We've got about a 150 man hours that it took us to stuff these Easter Eggs," said Church On The Move Pastor Marvin Salcido, Jr.  "It took us two days to do it, and we had a lot of volunteers, but it's a great thing, and we love to reach out to boys and girls, and we are always doing stuff like this."  The eggs were of course stuffed with candy.  Plus, the chance to win an ipod, or a bike.
