ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Police Department and the Easter Bunny hopped on down to Tift park this morning.

The community was invited to join them at this year's Spring Eggstravaganza for the big Easter egg hunt.

Close to 250 people attended and more than 3,000 Easter eggs were stuffed with candy and then hidden at the park.

The Albany Police partnered with the Recreation and Parks department for this year's event and they say their bat mobile was a big hit.

"The kids don't want to leave the games. They're having such a good time. They don't want to go home and thankfully the rain held out too," said Kristin Caso, Special Events and Marketing Coordinator for Albany Recreation and Parks Department.

After all of the eggs were found, arts and crafts and games were set up for everyone to enjoy. Organizers say the event has been around for decades.
