6K eggs to be hidden at 68th Hattiesburg Lion's hunt

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hundreds of children are expected to head to Vernon Dahmer Park Saturday to fill their baskets with thousands of eggs during the 68th annual Community Easter Egg Hunt.

It's hosted by the Hattiesburg Lion's Club, the City of Hattiesburg and Omega Psi Phi, inc.

Children ages 3-12 are invited to attend. Adults are required to accompany the kids.

It's set to begin at 9 a.m. 

"Some of the kids that came here originally are now parents and grandparents, so it's a family tradition to come to the Easter Egg hunt and we're prepared and ready for them to come." said Larry DeLeon, a member of the Hattiesburg Lion's Club. 

He said about 6,000 eggs will be laid out for the children. 

Games and other activities will take place after the hunt.
