CORPUS CHRISTI - The Alamo Helicopter from San Antonio made a grand entrance today at Whataburger Field to drop ten's of thousands of easter eggs. The Summit Church hosted the first community Easter egg hunt at the ball field and the crowd was loving it.
"The helicopter," one kid said. "I'm excited about that."
"I'm excited about it," said a parent. "It's going to be pretty cool so all the kids are going to like it out here."
More than 6,500 people walked the warning track and filled the stands anticipating the signal to scour the field and collect as many eggs as possible.
"The candy's the best," said one kid anxiously awaiting the drop.
It was candy stickers and knick knacks inside and when the horn sounded kids up to eleven years old stormed the outfield but not to shag fly balls...to hunt for eggs and lots of them!
Kids piled the shiny plastic into their baskets. At the end of it all, children went home with their colorful baskets full of easter goodies.
The Summit Church says the purpose of this event was to extend open arms to the entire community and invite people out to easter services beginning tomorrow morning at 8:00.
