An egg-cellent find

Posted by Katie G. Cotterill

ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Caleb Davis checks out the frog toy Terry Calloway III found in his plastic egg at the annual spring egg hunt in Cal Anderson Park on Saturday. Helping the two boys was Caleb's godmother and Terry's grandmother, Teresa Williams, whose hand is visible at lower right. Hundreds of treat-filled plastic eggs were scattered in the Capitol Hill park for the annual day-before-Easter event.

ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

A throng of youngsters, some guided by family members, dashed to collect the treat-filled eggs. Seattle Parks & Recreation hosted the fun, and the Daughters of Elks brought volunteer help. Formerly called an Easter egg hunt, the city event includes a nod to recycling: Children keep the plastic eggs' contents, but the eggs will be reused next year.
