The threat of rain did not dampen the enthusiasm of approximately 450 kids who participated in the annual Salina Easter Egg Hunt. The Chamber of Commerce event offered over 10,000 candy filled eggs, 2,000 prize eggs, 500 $5 eggs, live bunnies and 16 grand prize bicycle giveaways.
Bicycle winners were: Lori Ann Lindsey & Braxton Bishop (toddlers), Serenity Terhune & Mason Orman (2-year-olds), Paisley Chancellor and Kayden Bridges (3-year-olds), Addey Stipes and Lane Soukup (4-year-olds), Kaydence and Cason Hawkins (Kindergarten), Chloe Estep and Morgan Duncan (first and second grade), Bralee Kingfisher and Christian Stone (third and fourth grade), and Megan Vann and Wyatt Hawkins (fifth and sixth grade).
The chamber teamed up with Ultimate TV to raffle off a VIZIO 60-inch E Series Smart TV, complete with WiFi, Razor LED 120 Hz Ultra Thin Design and a smart remote with keyboard.
The winning ticket was drawn at the egg hunt and the winner was Anita Cooper.
