Albany -- Several South Georgia children got a head start on Easter Saturday.

More than 150 children were out and about hunting for eggs at the American Legion Post 512 Annual Easter Egg hunt.

The American Legion puts on the egg hunt every year to build relationships with the kids and remind them about the importance of education. The Easter Bunny was also there to help bring this message home. 

"I am a definite believer in education. Primarily what we are trying to do is build a fellowship and relationship with the kids. So we are trying to get everything together for them and show them that we care. That's the main thing."

Food and refreshments were given to the children after the hunt. But most of the children used this time to show off what they found during the hunt.
