Easter fun: Central Fresno children hunt for eggs

Easter egg hunts are picking up steam around the central San Joaquin Valley, including one Thursday that attracted about 100 neighborhood kids in central Fresno.

The Boys and Girls Club of Fresno County and Assembly Member Henry T. Perea, D-Fresno, co-hosted the central Fresno in the field outside the Zimmerman club near Belmont Avenue and Highway 41. The kids collected about 750 eggs, plus candies and snacks during a spring break event culminated with a barbecue dinner.
