BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Local kids got to celebrate Easter early over the weekend by participating in several different Easter egg hunts in Bakersfield on Saturday.
One had the kids diving for eggs at the Mcmurtrey Aquatic Center. The kids were able to swim in a heated pool and search for the eggs. They also received a gift. It was the eight year the underwater egg hunt has been held.
The Bakersfield Homeless Shelter also held it's annual Eggstravaganza Easter egg hunt. Kids who live at the shelter or are part of its after care programs were able to partake in the festivities. The event is held every year the weekend before Easter.
The third hunt is what some were calling the "World's Largest Easter Egg Hunt." It was put on by the Canyon Hills Assemblies of God and it was held at Foothill High School.
They were expecting around 1,000 kids to show and had about 10,000 eggs waiting to be hunted. The church invited families from all around Bakersfield to participate in the event.
