South Weber City Easter Egg Hunt

The Easter Egg hunt was a big success. With over 300 kids turning out for an evening of fun that included lots of candy and lots of eggs. 

We had 4 age groups. 


For the 0-3 age group we did little grab bags for those kids that weren't sure what to do.

With a sunny 62 degree weather, the South Weber City Fire Department blew the horn and started the Easter Egg Hunt. 

We would like to thank all those who helped.
