Hundreds of kids filled Boardman Park for a huge Easter egg hunt on Saturday.
Greater Life Church planted 42,000 eggs in the park for children up to 5th grade. The Easter Eggstravaganza also featured bounce houses, live music and food vendors.
The church is new to the area, opening in Boardman’s Glenwood Middle School in January.
“We knew this would be a big event and we were praying for good weather. We wanted something for the kids. We love kids, that’s one of the big focuses at our church is children. We wanted to do something for kids,” said Emily Bruner, of Greater Life Church.
Easter service begins at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at Greater Life Church.[lin_video src=http://eplayer.clipsyndicate.com/embed/iframe?aspect_ratio=3×2&auto_start=0&pf_id=9626&rel=3&show_title=0&va_id=4000238&volume=8&windows=1 service=syndicaster width=425 height=330 type=iframe]
