It was a mad scramble for candy as children from across the region descended on the fields of Mount Vernon High School April 20 in the hunt for more than 20,000 candy-filled eggs as part of an Easter family day celebration.
Called The Biggest Easter Egg Hunt, the event was hosted by Mount Vernon’s Washington Community Church and featured face painting, jugglers and inflatables.
Following the hunt, prizes including stuffed animals, Nintendo Switches and bicycles were distributed through a raffle drawing.
The Washington Community Church, led by Senior Pastor Steve Bradcovich, is a non-denominational church located in the Mount Vernon area of Alexandria and hosts the free family event as part of its community outreach.
