Hundreds of kids got a chance to get their hands on a few sweets during an Easter egg hunt.
The First Baptist Church in Charlottesville put on their annual Easter Egg Hunt at Tonsler Park Saturday.
The free event gave people the opportunity to come out and celebrate Easter in the park.
The pastor of First Baptist Church says that this gives his congregation an opportunity connect with the community.
"We believe as a church that we're not just an institution that meets on Sundays to celebrate God, but we are also a people who loves people on behalf of God. So this is an opportunity to touch people with the finger of love," said Hodari Hamilton, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Charlottesville.
Last year over 500 children came out to the event and over 2,500 eggs were collected.
