On Saturday, April 15, an ‘Egg-cellent’ Easter Egg Hunt was hosted by the Burger King’s Kids Club – Club BK. This community Easter Egg Hunt was held under the theme, 'Hunting for the Truth.’
It was a colorful family friendly event that allowed children to discover the Easter story, God’s way. There were lots of opportunities for attendees to capture the moments at our photo booth on site.
As for the Hunt itself, there were almost 2,000 Easter eggs dispersed throughout the event grounds … eggs were everywhere. Children from throughout the Grand Bahama community were in awe as their eyes were greeted with the colorful array of Easter eggs.
The music was rocking and the kids were hopping. “We hopped off with the Bunny Sack Races and winners were awarded Easter Baskets and other fun prizes,” said a spokesperson for the event.
Toastmaster Jethro Dixon from Destiny Toastmasters’ Club was the emcee of this enjoyable event. He rocked the event with his energy from start to finish.
For kids 12 and under it was a fun-filled day.
Following the Sack Races, kids participated in the Egg and Spoon Races, got their faces painted, grabbed a balloon from the balloon artists, jumped around in the Bouncing Castles and just had a great time.
One of the highlights of the day was the Easter Egg Hunt.
The eggs were carefully placed on the lawn, along with the one dozen special eggs, which included items connected to Jesus’ crucifixion. The egg hunt was divided in two categories: five years and under, and six years and over. It was exciting watching their little legs scramble for the eggs.
During story time, Levette Smith-Farrington did a wonderful job in telling the Resurrection story. Children were drawn to her fun gestures as she shared the meaning of each item found within the special eggs that were hidden.
Our team was on hand for those who wanted to sign up to be a part of Club BK to share in the benefits that the kids club offers.
“We would like to thank our volunteers from the community and employees of Burger King for assisting with the event. A big thank you to the Pilots Club of Lucaya, the Anchors Club of Lucaya, and St. Georges’ High School who assisted in making it all possible.
“This event has been the dubbed biggest community Easter Egg Hunt on Grand Bahama Island. We are looking forward to hosting an even bigger and better event next year. Special thanks you everyone who made this event possible.”
Burger King is proud to have sponsored this event, which afforded the children of Grand Bahama an afternoon of fun.
