ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Easter egg hunt turned educational on Sunday at the Flint Riverquarium. 

Kids and their parents participated in an indoor Easter egg scavenger hunt. 

Facts about animals and exhibits at the Riverquarium provided clues as to where the eggs were hidden. 

Employees said this was a great opportunity for kids to get out of the rain and have fun. 

"We're really focused on education." said Education Curator Stephen Birchfield. "It's a great place to bring your children for entertainment, but also to get them excited and get them enthusiastic about the Flint River and about animals. Open up some new experiences for them."

After each child completed the scavenger hunt, they were entered into a drawing to win the grand prize of a fishing starter kit.
