KOSCIUSKO — The rain and 40-degree temperatures didn’t discourage area children from attending the annual Easter egg hunt at the Kosciusko County Community Fairgrounds today, April 20.
The hunt which featured 28,000 eggs, was originally planned various outdoor locations around the fairgrounds. Due to the forecast, the fair board decided to move the hunts inside the barns to avoid canceling the event.
The hunt was separated into four age groups, with one grand prize winner in each group.
New this year was a “special” egg hunt held in the show barn. The special hunt was open to children of all ages who are unable to participate in other Easter egg hunts due to mental or physical disabilities.
This annual event was sponsored by Midwest Poultry Services, Wildman Business Group, Quick Clean Laundry and U-Stor-It Mini Warehouse.
