Helicopter to drop 20,000 eggs at Easter event

A helicopter will drop over 20,000 Easter eggs filled with candy and prizes during a first-ever event hosted by Rock Hill Baptist Church.

“This will be our first huge, community-wide Easter egg hut for the kids,” Sherry Parker said. “When we had our 2010 Halloween festival on the Highway 31 property, we had 1,200 visi- tors pass through our gate.”

The Easter egg hunt is scheduled for April 23, from 2 to 4 p.m., at a clearing on the south side of State Highway 31, between Chandler and Brownsboro.

Parker said she hopes to have that many attend the festivities for the egg drop.

“It’s sure to be something no one has seen around here before. I’ve lived in this area practically my whole life, and I’ve never heard of such a thing.”

Bounce Houses, face painting, and games will also be available.

At 6 p.m. on the same day, Rock Hill will host a fundraiser concert with live instruments and local artists performing. A church mission team is scheduled to travel to Lilongwe, Malawi, in Africa, on June 13-24.
