When the fire truck blasted its horn at precisely 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 3, Belle Plaine children up to 10-years-old ran through the fields of Heritage Square Park to collect as many colorful Easter eggs as possible.

Members of the Belle Plaine Fire Department's Ladies Auxiliary hosted the annual event, hiding hundreds of pastel plastic eggs for the celebration.

This year’s egg hunt was divided into age groups, with the youngest children picking up eggs from the grass and older kids searching for hiding spots around the purple playground equipment.

The entire event lasted about 10 minutes from start to finish.
