PARKERSBURG - While Easter egg hunts are primarily for children, a number of canine family members got to have fun with the activity on Friday. Roughly 10 minutes after the word "go" was heard, and the stampede of children ran into their sections, there were few of the Easter eggs left. Those who attended also got one of 500 Frisbees and one of 1,000 balloons.

This was Tebbetts' first time keeping an eye out for Brayden, who seemed like a seasoned pro at grabbing as numerous candy-filled, multi-colored plastic Easter eggs he could carry.

"This is a great event", Drake said.

Funnel cakes, roasted corn and other food booths, along with items from local restaurants and businesses also were on site, with a taste of something for everyone.

Dozens of families showed at the FOP Camp in Evansville to hunt, like the Mitchell family, with their visually impaired daughter, Veronika.
