Egg Hunt Scrapped, Aggressive Parents Blamed

COLORADO SPRINGS (UPI) — The annual Old Colorado City Easter Egg Hunt in Colorado Springs was canceled this year because some parents were getting too aggressive, organizers said.

“The parents were getting in my way and I was like pushing them because I wanted to get through but I couldn’t get anything,” said young Danaee Jordan, who participated in the event last year.

The event is usually held every year inside Bancroft Park for nearly a decade, KKTV, Colorado Springs, reported Tuesday.

This year, Old Colorado City Association director Dave VanNess said, the event was called off.

“Most of [the parents] went in, made it difficult for me to see my child so there was definitely a safety concern there and she didn’t get anything so we spent about an hour down there and she ended up with nothing so it wasn’t very fun for her,” said Danaee’s mother, Brittany Swanson.

Organizers said the budget was also an issue prompting the cancellation of the event.

Local businesses said the cancellation is unfortunate, because it was a fun event and brought families to the area.
