The Powell Easter Egg Hunt became the Powell Easter Carnival as festivities were moved to the gym at First Baptist Powell because of the weather.
Laura Bailey and the Events Committee of the Powell Business & Professional Association made it all look seamless. Even the Mayfield cow found the church parking lot, along with a Rural Metro Fire engine.
Everything was free – hot dogs (donated by Food City and cooked by Todd Daniel), snow cones, candy, popcorn, balloons, cookies, drinks, candy-filled eggs, a live DJ, hula-hoop contest, bounce house and slide, and more.
PBPA gave away over $2,500 in prizes including two bicycles for each age group. As depicted below, the kids lined up and eggs were rolled down a tarp from the balcony. The eggs hit the gym floor and bounced into the crowd of kids. It was more of a scrum than a hunt, but a great time was had by all.
