Beaumont’s First Baptist Church is planning to make its ninth annual community Easter egg hunt more accessible for the whole community.

The hunt for 25,000 eggs begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 15 in Rogers Park.

Children’s pastor Melissa Johnson recommends that parents of kids with special needs arrive early and use one of the six handicap accessible spaces in the parking lot off Gladys Street.

The community egg hunt now regularly has over 1,000 attending each year, according to Johnson.
