The sun shone brightly for the Easter egg hunt at Jensen Grove on Saturday in stark contrast to the snow that lay on the grass the day before. Hundreds attended the activity hosted by the Blackfoot Community Center and the Blackfoot Chamber of Comerce.
Brightly colored eggs littered the taped off areas of the Grove. The Blackfoot Fire Department signaled its start and hundreds of children clamored for their prizes. Dainian Martinez, only 4 years old, could barely stand the anticipation of waiting. His mother, Suzette noted how excited he was.
"He was sick last year and too young the year before so this is his first Easter egg hunt. He's very excited."
The Easter egg was a success for bright-eyed Dainian. He only got three eggs but the experience was worth much more. Those attending the Easter egg hunt also were served a light breakfast of donuts, juice, yogurt and other pastries.
