Easter egg hunt – largest in NJ history set for this weekend
This weekend, thousands of children will grab their Easter baskets as more than 500 volunteers spread out across four locations to take part in the largest Easter egg hunt in New Jersey history.
"The hunt will include 100,000 eggs which will be hidden in four locations, Morristown, Mountainside, New Brunswick and Nutley," said Tim Lucas, lead pastor of Liquid Church. "We will be hosting four services over the weekend and at the end of each experience, we will have those eggs distributed in fields, ballrooms and other locations for kids from toddler age to elementary school age to go and find."
Typically, Liquid Church has between 3,000 and 4,000 people attending services on Sundays. On Easter, that attendance sometimes doubles.
"We get a lot of first-time guests or visitors or young families who are just returning to church for the first time in a long time. We want to put on a special event to celebrate them," Lucas said.
Each of the eggs will be stuffed with candy and toys. There will be one golden egg at each location that will contain a ticket inside for a free iPad.
Participants and volunteers do not have to be members of Liquid Church. For more information or to find out how you can volunteer, visit the church's website.
