It wasn't the same Easter Egg Hunt we've seen in the past at the Columbia County Fairgrounds.

Traditionally, hundreds of children would scamper across the grassy fields hoping to find plastic eggs filled with candy treats hidden earlier by volunteers.

The Line Up

Vehicles line up as the drive-through begins at the fairgrounds.

Waiting For Treats

A child holds her Easter basket in hopes of collecting treats during the drive-through.

The 2021 hunt held Saturday, April 3, would be a drive-thru due to the COVID-19 pandemic health and safety guidelines.

Directing

Connection

Local law enforcement joined the fun.

Still, families came and were greeted by life-size bunnies and volunteers who handed out treat bags as the vehicles passed in and out of the fairgrounds in St. Helens.
