Hundreds of children and parents made their way to Applegate Park last Saturday morning to take part in the Kiwanis Club of Greater Merced’s annual Easter Egg hunt.
Volunteers packed and placed more than 4,000 colorful plastic eggs full of everything from candy to special Pokemon figures.
After the frenzy of the hunt, families were invited to take photos with Pikachu and take part in a large Rock Paper Scissors tournament. Others made their way to the Kiwanis Kiddieland Park to enjoy the rides and the concession stand.
Kiddieland is open Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. Tickets for rides are only 50 cents and $1 for the train ride.
