Madison Mallards host The Great Dane Easter Egg Hunt
MADISON (WKOW) -- Hundreds of children and their families gathered at the Madison Mallards stadium in Warner Park on Saturday for the annual Great Dane Easter Egg Hunt.
Easter eggs were spread out over the field, and certain sections were designated for specific age groups. Kids collected the plastic eggs, which had candy and other treats inside.
The Great Dane began the Easter egg hunt 16 years ago as a way to be involved with the community.
"Easter egg hunts in Madison were on the decline, and we wanted to do events with children and with families," says The Great Dane's Director of Operations Ted Peterson. "We saw a great opportunity to have an Easter egg hunt. It was one of the first ones in Madison at the time, and now it's grown to be one of the biggest Easter egg hunts in Madison."
Peterson estimates over 600 children and their families attended Saturday's event. This marks the first year the event was held at the Madison Mallards stadium. Peterson says the event will be held at the ballpark from now on.
Evangelist Franklin Graham prayed on a sidewalk outside the Pentagon Thursday after his invitation to a prayer service inside was withdrawn because of comments that insulted people of other religions. More>>
