A helicopter was used to help the Easter Bunny deliver eggs during the annual egg hunt at Earls Pentecostal Holiness Church on Saturday.
More than 300 people were on hand as more than 2,400 plastic eggs were dropped from a chopper owned and piloted by Ervin Lambert, with help from Ervin Wendell Lambert and Tray Lambert.
It took the children only about 15 minutes to retrieve all the eggs after they were dropped.
There are more Easter events this week. They include:
