Due to a sports conflict at Copp;er King Baseball Stadium, the 12th annual Douglas Dispatch Easter Egg Hunt will move to Armando de Lucas stadium, the Douglas High School football field.
The event typically draws 300 to 500 kids age 10 and under .
The hunt involves collecting as many plastic Easter Eggs and as much candy as possible.
There will be more than 1,000 prefilled eggs with candy and small t0ys, along with prize eggs containing gift certificates.
More than 300 pounds of pre-wrapped candy will dot the football field as well as dozens of special prize Easter Eggs.
The participating children are split up into three age groups: 0--3, 4-7 and 8-10.
At the beginning of the event, each child will receive a ticket which is used to draw for Easter baskets at the end of the hunt.
