LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Hundreds of kids spent Saturday afternoon searching for 30,000 Easter eggs at the fourth annual Easter Egg Hunt and Sidewalk Carnival at Ivy Tech.

The event featured separate egg hunts for those as young as a few months old to children ages 10 and older. Some eggs contained candy while others contained coupons to local businesses.

The event was put on by students in Ivy Tech’s dental assistant program and raises funds for the Judy Buckles Scholarship. Buckles started the program at the school more than 40 years ago.

“Since the very beginning of the semester we’ve been preparing for this one day. It’s completely worth it. I’m so happy with our turnout and I think this is going to be our biggest year yet,” said Jenny Luck, class president at Ivy Tech.

The event also featured a petting zoo, carnival games, and music.
