VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Valdosta Lowndes County Parks and Recreation authority is preparing for a big Easter egg hunt on Saturday.
 
It is called the "Egg-ceptional Easter Egg Hunt". It's an Easter egg hunt for children with special needs. The group plans to use three thousand eggs for the event.

There will be two different egg hunts and, yes, the Easter bunny will be there.
 
"This Saturday, April 12th, we will be having our first ever egg-ceptional egg hunt," Tammy Crosby, VLPRA Therapeutic Specialist, explained. "It's for special needs children ages 2 to 12...we will also have all types of arts and crafts, snacks, and bounce houses."
 
 
The event is being held at the Craig Center at 1104 West Gordon street. The first egg hunt is set for 11 a.m.
