15,000 Easter eggs highlight church's day of events

Thousands attend church's annual Easter egg hunt

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - An Easter tradition at a Baton Rouge church has children searching for thousands of Easter eggs.

15,000 Easter eggs were spread near the Full Gospel United Pentecostal Church in North Baton Rouge on Saturday. The event, which has face-painting, food, and prizes, attracts thousands of locals every year.

Pastor Ryan Allmon says that people don't really see these kinds of family activities in North Baton Rouge. "We want to do something. Invest in our community and the youth of our community." Says Allmon.

Events at the Full Gospel UPC will continue on Easter Sunday at 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.
