A huge crowd came out for Galena’s annual Easter Egg Hunt on a beautiful spring day and the children were as eager as ever to find more than 2,000 Easter eggs, candy, coins and lots of treasure.

Children from infants to 10 year-olds had fun hunting eggs, and even more fun discovering the 10,000 pieces of candy and pennies inside. Children ages 5 to 10 also participated in a coin and candy toss and infants to 10-year-old children each received a toy.

Children in infant through 10-year-old groups who found prize eggs in each age group received Easter baskets full of goodies. Eleven to 14 year-olds participated in a scavenger hunt to win dollar coins.

The Village thanks the Delaware County Bank for their Easter Bunny and Karin Underwood and Journey Fellowship Church members for all their hard work to plan and carry out an excellent Easter Egg Hunt.

Winning Easter baskets at Galena’s Easter Egg Hunt are (l. to r.) Cooper Ailes (infant to 4 year olds without parents), Audrey Irwin (8-10 year olds), and Ava Weber (5-7 year olds). Not pictured is Daniel Toller (infant to 4 year olds with parents).
