An untraditional Easter egg hunt in Concord is big hit with kids

CONCORD - For Easter, there were a ton of activities across the Granite state to celebrate, including one in Concord where eggs fell from the sky.

“I was screaming” says one kid. Another said “It was amazing!”

The Next Level Church held their second annual egg drop. The event began last year as a way to give back to the community.

"That’s really what it’s about," said Pastor Pablo Lopez. "Just be able to provide something fun and free."

The church is about 8 years old and has been putting on the drop for seven years - but for only the second time in the Concord area.

"We're a multi-site church which means we are one church with multiple locations," Lopez said.

They brought in a bouncy house, free face paint, and free food.

About 5,000 colorful eggs filled with candy and toys fell from the sky.

"They were like tiny chicken eggs falling out of the sky!" one little girl yelled.

About 400 excited kids were there. The church had to separate them by age and did three drops. Kids could be seen running to scoop the eggs into bags behind the Mill Brook School.

"I had a great... I had a great one!" one little boy explained, describing an egg.

The best way to start Easter Sunday is “waking up and seeing the basket full of chocolate” says one girl.

But for some, the best part of the day is still family.

“Because I love them!” said another boy.
