WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Baskets prepared, faces painted, and eggs hidden among the trees. Easter came early for a bubbling bunch of kids at Halyburton Park.
The Easter egg hunt would not be complete without a golden egg filled with an extra special gift.
And even though the competition for the elusive golden egg was fierce many kids said if they found it, they would share the prize with others.
"Well, I told Brielle even if we both find the golden egg, or if she does and I don't, or if I do and she doesn't we can share the golden egg, what's inside,” Easter egg hunter Addia House said.
A lucky little girl found the golden egg, proudly showing it off to others.
Kids say Easter is all about having fun, spending time with family and of course, eating chocolates found in the eggs.
