Hundreds of people attend Augusta Tech’s second annual Easter egg hunt despite rain

Augusta, Georgia (WJBF) – Despite the inclement weather, there were big smiles at Augusta Polytechnic Institute as hundreds of participants turned out for an Easter-themed surprise after moving their annual egg hunt indoors. WJBF photojournalist Reginal McKee was also there to witness and participate in the festivities.

“We’re not going to let something as small as a light rain prevent the bunnies from coming out and saying hello to the community,” said Kimberly Holden, Augusta Tech’s executive director of marketing.

Augusta Polytechnic Institute invited the public to the 2nd Annual Augusta Polytechnic Institute Easter Egg Hunt on Wednesday night, March 27, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on the Augusta campus.

Due to inclement weather, Augusta Technology Leadership moved the Easter Egg Hunt to the Jack B. Patrick Information Technology Center in Building 1000 on the Augusta campus.

Participants were divided into different age groups, and the size of the Jack B. Patrick Center made it possible to spread the excitement all around and conduct a variety of egg hunts throughout the building.

There was plenty of space for different search parties to look for eggs, and plenty of space to count eggs afterwards.

Egg hunter Kailyn Frick said she came here to spend time with her sisters and have fun. In the end, her only two eggs were left. That was after she had her sisters fill the basket.

Despite the weather, Augusta Tech officials said about 400 people registered, signed in and participated in last night’s hunt.

Augusta Polytechnic Institute said it was “surprised” by the turnout for its Easter egg hunt, which is only in its second year.

The event was free and open to the community, and participants were only asked to bring eggs and an Easter basket to collect prizes.

Executive Director Holden told WJBF, “The community rallied to show support for Augusta Polytechnic Institute and the Easter egg hunt. This is a safe, enclosed environment where children can get outside and have fun. They are very, very appreciative of the opportunity we are providing them.
