More than six dozen children and their families searched the snow-covered park, gathering plastic Easter eggs filled with candy and prize tickets.

The tickets could be exchanged for toys, crayons, costume jewelry, games, pencils and more.

Inside the Anoka Senior Center building children were invited to plant flower seeds, play table games, participate in a cake walk, spin the wheel for a candy sucker and have pictures taken with the Easter bunny.

The event was made possible by donations from local businesses and funded by money raised by the Women of Today.

“This is such a fun day,” said Anoka Women of Today President Sharri Brecto. “The kids love it, we love it. Every year this is a great time. Of course, we don’t always have six inches of snow on the ground, but that makes it even more fun.”
