Newtown Easter egg hunters bag limit

3,500 – 4,000 turn out for park’s big family-friendly event



JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Want to know how to make 10,000 Easter eggs disappear in two-and-a-half minutes? Spread them out on three ball fields and tell 500 kids, “Go!”

That’s about all it took at the annual the city’s Newtown Park Easter Egg Hunt Sunday, March 29. But that wasn’t the end of the fun, not by a long shot. With eggs and baskets in hand, the action moved to the Newtown amphitheater where activities just began to get started.

Some took picnic lunches on the green, others availed themselves of the food trucks. Kids had their choice: petting zoo, crafts, sack races, hula hoops and various inflatables to bounce and crawl over.

It was just the kind of family event the city envisioned for the park.
