Egg Hunt Tossed Because Of Violent Adults

MACON, Ga., (UPI) –  An annual Easter egg hunt in Central City Park in Macon, Ga., was canceled this year because of unruly parents, officials said.

The annual Easter egg hunt in Central City Park, which would have been held Saturday, was one of the largest in Middle Georgia, The Macon (Ga.) Telegraph reported.

However, officials decided to cancel the event because “parents caused a situation in which some children got hurt,” said Bibb County Commissioner Joe Allen, founder and CEO of Kids Yule Love which coordinated the egg hunt.

Allen said some parents insisted on accompanying their children in the hunt and some incidents occurred when parents became violent in attempts to get eggs for themselves or their children.

The event, he said, became a liability for Kids Yule Love.

“When people get hurt, they want some kind of compensation,” he said.

“People forgot what the program was about … An Easter egg hunt is only part of what Easter is all about,” he said.
