The sound of kids laughing and screaming, running excitedly to find Easter eggs and participating in tug-of-war events filled the air as parents watched their children play.
It was an exciting Good Friday for 11-year-old Ivan Campos, who participated in an Easter egg hunt and was searching for money eggs so he could buy a toy.
There were a total of about 3,500 to 4,000 eggs that filled the yard of the Texas African American Museum, with some containing candy and larger shiny eggs that contained money for the kids.
Campos mentioned that he and his sister received first and third place for the tug of war.
“My favorite part was grabbing the eggs with both of my hands with my cousin,” he said. “We were getting some kind of chocolate called Lindor and we got some Smarties, we got some toys.”
The Texas African American Museum, located at 309 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Tyler, hosted the fun-filled Kids Day event on Friday afternoon.
