Little Hoosiers Hunt For Easter Eggs At IMS

Hundreds Of Children Search For 15K Eggs

Hundreds of little Hoosiers attended the 2nd Annual Indianapolis Motor Speedway Easter Egg Hunt.

The event was held on Saturday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where organizers scattered more than 15,000 special eggs across the lawn near turn two.

IMS spokesman Tom Surber said each egg was filled with a slip of paper describing games and prizes for the children.

"We have bounce houses and we have drawings for tickets for IMS events, whether it be the Indianapolis 500, or the Super Weekend featuring the Brickyard 400 or the MotoGP. There's lots of fun, lots of excitement, and everyone is having a great time,” Surber said.

Egg hunter Nina Willis was in the giving spirit during the event.

“I'm going to find (the eggs) and if I see anybody crying that doesn't have them, I'm going to come over and say, ‘Here, I'll share mine,’" Willis said.

Children also enjoyed a special visit from the Easter Bunny.
