(Cushing)- Hundreds of children, Easter baskets and plastic bags in tow turned out for the annual Earl Gibble Easter Egg Hunt in Cushing Memorial Park. Members of the Cushing-Drumright Elks Lodge spent hours spreading the eggs and taping off areas for the event Saturday morning, and the weather couldn’t have been better.
As the time inched nearer to 9:30, kids and parents started crowding the colored tape in anticipation of the siren that would sound signaling the beginning — and the end of the egg hunt, which lasts only a few seconds.
With some help from moms, dads and grandparents, the kids scooped up more than 10 thousand plastic eggs with candy or prizes inside.
And within five minutes, everyone was headed back their cars with Easter baskets full.
