Charizma Heagy, age 3 of Joyce, looks with delight at a plastic egg she is about to put into her Tweety Bird basket. The 13th annual Kitchens Family Community Easter Egg Hunt was held Saturday morning at Crescent School in Joyce. Several hundred kids from ages 1 to 10 scrambled to find 2,000 plastic eggs with prize designations in some and also 400 hardboiled eggs. The scramble took a little longer than usual because of the high grass and the large fields used.

In the photo at left, children scramble through an egg-filled field at the 36th annual KONP Easter egg hunt Saturday at The Pumpkin Patch west of Sequim.

Hundreds of children hunted for nearly 4,000 plastic eggs.

While most North Olympic Peninsula Easter egg hunts were on Saturday, the oldest continuous egg hunt in Clallam and Jefferson counties is at 8 a.m. Easter Sunday in Port Townsend. The Elks Lodge's 84th annual hunt will be at Chetzemoka Park.
