Kids Hunt for Golden Easter Egg at Bomber Field

EUREKA, Ca. (KIEM) – Kids of all ages came out this Easter Sunday to Bomber Field for a free Easter Egg Hunt put on by the Humboldt B52s and CASA.

Kids lined up, waited for a countdown to one, and then they went off to find as many eggs as they could. There was a special golden egg for every age group. Whichever lucky kid finds it, they get special prizes.

Kids running to gather Easter eggs after they were counted down.

“Each egg group gets roughly from 500 to 1,000 eggs. From what I’ve [seen] so far, 1,000 eggs last about five to seven minutes max,” said Jeff Giacomini General Manager of the B52s and one of the organizers of the Easter Egg Hunt event.

“Really excited. I hope I find the golden egg. I don’t think I’ll be able to,” said 6-year-old Eureka Resident Danica May Phillips.

Despite Phillips thinking she won’t find the golden egg, she still desires the reward.

“Cause I want to get those big prizes over there,” said Phillips.

It was Humboldt B52s and CASA’s first time doing the Easter Egg Hunt. They hope to do it again next year at Bomber Field.
