VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Dozen of Valdosta and Lowndes County children with special needs hunted for Easter eggs Saturday morning at the Valdosta Lowndes Parks and Rec Authority's egg-ceptional egg hunt.

This was the first year the event was held. The children also had an opportunity to have their picture taken with the Easter Bunny and create Easter themed arts and crafts.

Bryan Turley brought his son, Caden, to the egg hunt.

"This is the first time there's been an event like this to this magnitude just for children with special needs. So, we're very thankful. We were excited to find it," said Turley.

The egg hunt also included beep eggs, which make a beeping sound, for children who are visibly impaired.
