Areas are cordoned off according to age group. Then at the appointed hour the horn blows and then all of the goodies that took months to prepare are gathered up by anxious children within minutes. A fun morning for all those present. A great opportunity for the community to visit the Hill Aerospace Museum. The Easter Egg Hunt will return in 2020!
