Rain Pours on Sedalia Parks & Rec Easter Egg Hunt
Several Easter Egg hunts that were scheduled over Easter weekend. Each year the Sedalia Parks and Rec puts on an egg hunt the weekend before. However, snow cancelled it and moved it to today (Mar. 30). The National Weather Forecast had originally said the forecast for rain wasn’t supposed to come until the afternoon, but it showed up just before 10 a.m.
“It never fails, whenever we have rain or postpone an event, it seems to rain when we reschedule, ” said Amy Epple of Sedalia Parks & Rec. “Over 15,000 eggs were put on the ground and it started to pour a few minutes before 10:00. Of course, it stopped raining after the egg hunt. I can’t believe how many parents still came out in the pouring rain, that’s certainly dedication and love that you showed your kids! We certainly appreciate that great attitude and respect shown by all participants.”
Sedalia Parks & Rec usually makes a big event outside for this, but with the rain, the Liberty Land Flyer did not run and the Easter Bunny had to take photos inside. There were not many dogs that showed up for the dog bone hunt, but hopefully the weather will cooperate next year.
Here’s hoping each of you had a great Easter weekend!
