PHOTO GALLERY: Hundreds 'join the fun' for NOR Easter egg hunt

You've probably never seen 16,000 Easter eggs disappear so quickly.

Ten seconds before 10 a.m. Saturday, North of the River Recreation and Park District staff called out a countdown, and when the clock struck zero hour, the frenzied scramble began.

There were about 1,200 children on hand Saturday for the Easter egg hunt at Emerald Cove Park in Rosedale, said Lauren Cronk, recreation supervisor for the NOR district. And with hundreds of bags of candy, shared in the plastic eggs scattered in four different areas by age group and laid out in the grass, there was plenty for everyone, she said.
