The annual Parks Department Easter egg hunt was a success again this year.

Hundreds of children showed up to Simpson Park for the Chillicothe Parks Department’s annual Easter Egg Hunt. This year parks department staff stuffed and hid more than 4,000 eggs. The event is one of the fastest in Chillicothe annually. Within five minutes of the start of the event most of the eggs had been found and children were looking in the eggs discovering the treats they won. There was a grand prize winner for each age category.
