(Le Mars) — A blast of the horn, and the sound of the siren from a Le Mars Fire Department Truck, marked the start of the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Hundreds of children attacked Cleveland Park, and within a few minutes had cleared the area of some 10,000 plastic eggs filled with candy. The weather conditions made for a cold and windy morning for the annual Easter egg hunt, but all the children didn’t seem to mind as they filled their baskets with the eggs. Several children also had their photo taken with the Easter bunny. The annual event was sponsored in part by Primebank and The Education Station.
