800 kids hunt for eggs at MetroParks farm today

When he’s in school, 10-year-old Sean Baxter enjoys reading and participating in science experiments.

The scientific process behind the Burghill boy’s amassing lots of candy was quite simple: come to an Easter egg hunt with a basket, wait for the countdown and go after as many goodies as possible in an allotted time.

“I got Twizzlers, I got Starbursts, I got lollipops and I got potato chips,” the proud Badger Elementary School fourth-grader said as he ticked off the main items that filled his basket.

Sean and his sister, Ella Baxter, 5, were among those who took part in Saturday’s annual Easter Eggstravaganza at Mill Creek MetroParks’ James L. Wick Recreation Area off McCollum Road on the West Side.

An estimated 800 children age 2 to 10 and adults attended the gathering, said Carol Vigorito, Mill Creek MetroParks’ recreational program and education manager.
