Easter egg hunt at Oaks by the Bay Park

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Children of all ages hopped around searching for Easter eggs Saturday morning during the St. Andrews Easter egg hunt.

The event was held at the Oaks by the Bay Park.

The Krewe of St. Andrews puts on the Easter egg hunt every year.

The Easter bunny was there to take pictures with the kids and join in on the fun.

Pat Rea, Queen of the Krewe of St. Andrews, said, "It's such a rewarding thing, we put the eggs out and these kids show up and they're so excited they can barely wait for the whistle and then when the whistle blows they charge through and they're all excited filling up their baskets and so it's just a wonderful thing to watch."

The Krewe also held an Easter egg hunt later in the day for kids with special needs.
