In addition to four Easter Egg hunts, children attending Sunday's event at Raymond James Stadium could make bunny masks and engage in other arts and crafts
A blanket of multicolored Easter eggs covered the field at Raymond James Stadium Sunday as thousands of young children from around the Tampa Bay area came out to enjoy the third annual "Bucs Easter Egg Hunt" presented by University Community Health.
It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, a day for families to enjoy the spring weather as well as a number of Buccaneer and Easter-themed events.
The day centered around four egg hunts, but children were also able to participate in a variety of arts and crafts activities. A Home Depot booth gave kids the opportunity to build a treasure chest at, while volunteers from The Tampa Tribune helped the youngsters make newspaper hats.
Kids attending Sunday's event also had the opportunity to make bunny masks with some of their favorite Buccaneer players, including Shelton Quarles, John Wade, Dewayne White, John Howell and Ryan Nece. In addition, Captain Fear, the team's mascot, was on hand to sign autographs and entertain the children.
No Easter Egg Hunt would be complete without the Easter Bunny, of course. Between combing the field for eggs and stopping at the various activity booths, the children were delighted to pose for pictures with the Easter Bunny, who stayed for the entire event.
The third annual "Bucs Easter Egg Hunt" was a huge success, a perfect combination of gorgeous weather and community support. The children who participated went home not only with baskets full of colored eggs, but with new Easter memories and a dab of Buccaneer team spirit.
