Hundreds Attend World’s Largest Easter Egg Hunt and Resource Fair

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) – The first-ever Biggest Easter Egg Hunt and Resource Fair took place on Saturday, April 9, 2022 at Rancho San Rafael Park.

Children were able to hunt over 50,000 Easter eggs filled with treats and 200 golden eggs which won children who found one a special prize.

The event ran from 10 a.m. to noon with a quieter, modified egg hunt for children with special needs from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

“To bring joy to a child, and simple joys, I mean they’re just ready to get those Easter eggs and see what’s in them, they want those golden eggs, and those are just those simple pleasures of seeing parents connect with their kids,” said event coordinator Tiffanie Story with the Washoe CASA Foundation.

Attendees were also able to visit 40 different resource tables with games and other activities to keep the children entertained while the adults receive valuable information about the children’s services of local organizations.

The Washoe CASA Foundation and Prevent Child Abuse Nevada remind the public that April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. It’s time to remember that each of us can play a role in promoting the social and emotional well-being of children and families in our community.
