With Easter in a week, people across the state are celebrating it at the Capitol for the annual Easter Egg Hunt.
The countdown to Easter begins and people are already celebrating it by hunting for eggs.
“Every Easter we go to church Sunday morning and we celebrate Jesus Christ. Then we get together with family and spend good quality time,” said Justin Bueligen, North Dakota resident.
Easter Egg Hunting is a game where eggs are decorated and hidden for kids to find. And what lies inside the eggs, kids can’t get enough of.
“The candy,” said Rebecca Zent, North Dakota resident.
For the past three years, Bismarck Optimist Club has been putting on an Easter Egg Hunt at the state Capitol.
“It’s a service club and our motto is a friend of youth. So, we have about 80 members in our club and we work on different projects throughout the year that benefit the youth in our community,” said Jerry Haas, Co-chair of the Optimist Easter Egg Hunt.
The Easter Egg Hunt Committee had 12,000 eggs for kids to hunt down. And even the cold temperatures couldn’t stop the festivities.
“The Easter bunny gives us eggs,” said Owen Zent, North Dakota resident.
Next year the club hopes to get more people involved and layout more eggs.
“Picking golden eggs is fun,” said Gus Kuntz, North Dakota resident.
The event is free for kids 10 years and younger
