RICHFIELD — Patches of snow on the ground didn’t keep children from finding colorful treasures during the Richfield Parks and Recreation’s Easter Egg Hunt March 23.

Best friends Zack Thonen and Dylan Kreighbaum, both 5 years old and from Richfield, were among those who joined the hunt at Richfield Town Hall Pavilion. The two are shown at middle right, from left, before the start of the event.

Once the hunt began, children worked in earnest to collect their share of eggs, as pictured at top right.

Quinn Kert, of Bath, is shown at bottom right as she tucks another egg in her basket.

In addition to finding eggs filled with treats, some children also won prizes, which were handed out by Mayor Bobbie Beshara at the end of the event.
