Beaumont's First Baptist Church is having their 10th annual community Easter egg hunt on Saturday, March 31 in Rogers Park.

The hunt for 25,000 eggs begins at 11 a.m., the church said in their event announcement. Bring your own basket for egg gathering. All 25,000 eggs are filled by volunteers by hand. 

"The community Easter egg hunt has grown to over 1,000 in attendance each year," children's pastor Melissa Johnson said.

All ages are welcome from birth through preteens, Johnson added. Six fields are broken up for different age groups to give everyone a chance to get as many eggs as possible. The new “Special Blessings” field started last year just for children with disabilities and sensory disorders will be back again at this year’s hunt. 

The event also includes a bike giveaway raffle for 16 bicycles.

Rogers Park is located at 1455 Dowlen Road. For more information, call (409) 833-1426 or visit
