The Easter Bunny makes an early stop in Tulsa. He flew in on a helicopter to drop his eggs at Guts Church Saturday morning. Hundreds of kids swarmed the field and grabbed the eggs. The church says some eggs contained money, up to $100, others were filled with candy. The pastor says he was a little concerned about the temperature, but says about a thousand kids registered for the egg hunt.
"We just wanna celebrate family and that's what this is,â€ said Pastor Bill Scheer. â€œIt's just us, honestly, helping parents provide fun for their kids and it being wholesome and healthy."
But, the hunt wasn't the only part of Saturdayâ€™s fun. The church set up inflatable games, giveaways, had a costume contest and set up a petting zoo, complete with pony rides.
The Easter Bunny will take a break from hiding eggs on Sunday. Pastor Scheer says the Kids Director will wrestle the Easter Bunny on Sunday.
