Locals Search for Easter Eggs at Columbus Park

Easter may have been last Sunday but there are still Easter eggs hiding around town.

Saturday nearly 100 community members came out to Columbus Park in Binghamton for the Neighbors Against Crime "almost" 20th annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Organizers say they waited until after the Easter holiday to hold the hunt in hopes of better weather.

Kids spent time searching for 1,500 candy filled eggs hidden all over the park. There were also refreshments, prizes and a Binghamton police K-9 Demo.

"And when you give kids positive things to do, we have coloring and there's games, it just allows them to be kids in a safe environment ," said Coordinator of the Neighbors Against Crime Egg Hunt Debra Hogan.

Neighbors Against Crime has been holding meetings and events since they formed their neighborhood watch group in June of 1995.
