Hundreds Come for Easter Egg Drop

Posted: Updated:

Lots of Easter egg hunts Saturday morning were scattered across Texoma. One of the largest was at Colonial Church. It was the annual egg drop. Up in the sky a helicopter dropped thousands of eggs for the children below. Church members say they put this on every year because they care about the community.

"We really do care about our city. We care about families. We want to provide an environment and opportunity for families to be able to come, no strings attached, just have a good time. That's why we put stuff like this on. We'll be doing this each and every year. Just kind of allow opportunities for our church family to be able to bless our city and be engaged in other families," said Senior Pastor, Jim Botts.

Hundreds of families came to enjoy the fun.
