The Osseo Fire Department Relief Association hosted its Ninth Annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 12 in Boerboom Veterans Memorial Park in Osseo. Kids ages up to 10 years old were invited to participate in the hunt of thousands of eggs filled candy, stickers, money and other goodies.

Three separate areas of the egg hunt were available — kids ages 0 to 3, 4 to 6, and 7 to 10. Each age area hid a grand prize golden egg. The grand prize winner from each age zone area received a huge chocolate bunny. Besides the egg hunt, kids and adults were able to look around inside the fire trucks and police cars, get their finger prints taken by Osseo Police Officers, have their own fire hat and coloring book, as well as have some cookies and something warm to drink.
