BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Kids and their parents packed Lindley Park for Bozeman Parks and Recreation's annual Easter Egg Hunt.
     
Coordinators call it a kick-off to spring and say the community event has been a Bozeman tradition for over 20 years.
     
Six age groups, kids up to age 12, searched for 9,500 hidden eggs.
     
Participants discovered everything from candy to stick-on earrings.
     
We caught up with a couple of successful egg seekers to see what they found and what they liked best about the event.

"What was the best part about hunting for eggs today?" we asked.
"Umm, seeing the Easter Bunny," says Belgrade resident Sienna Nelson.

Six-year-old Harper Holz tells us her favorite part was "finding eggs."

"How many do you think you found?" we asked.
"20," replied Holz after some deliberation.

Organizers say the hunt was a group effort, between Bozeman Police and Fire, Parks and Recreation, the Salvation Army and at least 30 volunteer students from the National Honor Society.
