Video: West Seattle egg hunts, with hundreds on the run

At the Southwest Community Center play area (video above), the preschoolers dashed – while the action at West Seattle Thriftway was more like “streaming in”:

Those are two of the egg hunts we checked out this morning. Like most, Southwest CC separated the hunters by age group – this photo is from the youngest group as they toddled around the back lawn, with parents close by:

Back inside Thriftway, eggs lined the aisles (the eggs are filled, by the way, by folks at Highlands Community Church in Renton) as the littlest searchers (who get a head start) went through:

Many egg hunts featured additional activities – at SWCC, kids could color while waiting for the big event:

And then there was the Eastridge Christian Assembly egg hunt at Lincoln Park:

They even had a bouncy slide:

And Eastridge was collecting diapers for WestSide Baby:

In all, those were among at least eight egg hunts in West Seattle this morning, including all five city-run community centers – Marco shared this photo from High Point CC:

Some local churches will offer egg hunts after services tomorrow, and St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church is even having one a week from tomorrow (April 11) at 11:30 am. ADDED: Thanks to Annette for sharing a photo collage from one of what we are sure were many egg hunts at private homes – this one in Gatewood:

    I should have braved the crowds at Thriftway just so I could “high-five” the Easter Bunny!!
